     BE IT RESOLVED by the City Council of the City of Thibodaux in regular

     WHEREAS, by Ordinance No. 1480 adopted April 4, 1989, the City of Thibodaux
(the "Franchising Authority") enacted a Cable T. V. Franchise Agreement granting
a cable television franchise (the "Franchise") which is held by Cablevision
Industries of Louisiana Partnership ("Franchise") as successor-in-interest to
Lafourche Communications, Inc.; and

     WHEREAS, TWI Cable, Inc., the ultimate parent entity of Franchise, has 
negotiated an asset purchase agreement (the "Agreement") with Renaissance Media 
Holdings LLC ("Holdings"), pursuant to which Franchise will transfer to 
Renaissance Media LLC, an affiliate of Holdings ("Renaissance"), substantially 
all of the assets of its cable television system serving the Franchising 
Authority (the "System"), including its rights under the Franchise; and

     WHEREAS, Franchise and Renaissance have filed a Form 394 (the "Transfer 
Application"); and

     WHEREAS, the Franchise requires that Franchising Authority grant its 
consent to an assignment of the Franchise by Franchisee, which consent shall not
be unreasonably withheld; and

     WHEREAS, Franchise and Renaissance have
 requested that Franchising 
Authority consent to the assignment and transfer of the Franchise by Franchisee 
to Renaissance; and

     WHEREAS, Franchising Authority has reviewed the Transfer application, 
examined the legal, financial and technical qualifications of Renaissance, 
followed all required procedures to consider and act upon the Transfer 
Application, and considered the comments of all interested parties; and

     WHEREAS, the Franchise is in full force and effect without default 
thereunder by Franchisee as of the date hereof in accordance with its terms
and conditions as set forth therein, and Renaissance has agreed to comply with 
the Franchise and applicable law from and after the completion of the transfer; 
and

     WHEREAS, Renaissance will need to grant one or more security interests 
and/or liens in or upon the Franchise and the system from time to time on or 
after the closing date of the transfer in order to secure the present and 
future indebtedness of Renaissance.

     NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED by the City Council of the City of Thibodaux:

     1.   Franchising Authority acknowledges that it has received a complete 
Transfer Application.

     2.   Franchising Authority does hereby consent to the transfer of the 
Franchise and all of Franchisee's rights, powers and privileges under the 
Franchise from Franchisee to Renaissance.

     3.   The foregoing consent to the transfer and assignment of the Franchise 
shall be effective upon the consummation of the transfer of the assets of the 
system by Franchisee to Renaissance at which time Franchising Authority shall 
automatically release Franchisee and its predecessors from all obligations and 
liabilities under the Franchise that relate to periods from an after such date. 
Notice of the date of such consummation shall be given to Franchising Authority.

     4.   Franchising Authority hereby consents to a transfer of the Franchise 
or control related thereto to any entity controlling, controlled by or under 
common control with Renaissance.

otherwise hypothecate the property and assets used or held for use in connection
with the ownership and operation of the System, including the Franchise, and the
parties owning or controlling Renaissance are authorized to pledge, mortgage, 
transfer in trust and otherwise hypothecate their equity interest in Renaissance

time in connection with the ownership and operation of the System.

     6.   Franchising Authority hereby confirms that, to its knowledge: (a) the 
Franchise is currently in full force and effect and expires on April 4, 2004; 
(b) Franchisee is currently the valid holder and authorized grantee of the 
Franchise; (c) Franchisee is in compliance in all material respects with the 
Franchise; and (d) no event has occurred or exists that would constitute a 
default under the Franchise or that would permit Franchising Authority to revoke
or terminate the Franchise.  Subject to compliance with the terms of this 
Resolution, all action necessary to approve the transfer of the Franchise to
