Just for clarification, National Grid is meeting with the City Councilors to get permission to underground lines at Storey Avenue.
This is a great thing.
If you can tear yourself away to attend, it would be worth it to swing by at 7:15 in the Council Chambers and give (if the Councilors allow the public to speak.) and give a hearty word of encouragement.
The main objective is to see most of the telephone poles gone and our utility lines buried. Any effort by National Grid should be herald on the rooftops and complimented as being conscientious toward our community.
As for the previous idea of the City purchasing these poles with the lights on them and therefore ‘institutionalizing’ them, we all need to get sticks out.
