An email circulating from a homeowner on 28th Street has a direct complaint about recent work that Dominion Power has done:
Dominion Power has been up in our neighborhood repairing and replacing their utility lines and poles. They are upgrading the wattage or something and instead of replacing the utility pole in front of our house to accommodate the upgrade, they put in a shoddy, jerry rigged contraption that looks like a goal post! It’s cheap, with PVC piping to “cover” the steel tether line. There are also strings and lines that have been shoddily strung onto this thing. […]
PLEASE HELP US! CALL NEWBILLE, CALL THE MAYOR, CALL DOMINION, CALL THE
PAPERS, CALL THE TV STATIONS!
After all the work that we have done in our community to preserve and clean it up and make it a better place and Dominion comes in and puts this atrocity in front of our house destroying our property values and curb appeal. […]
THIS IS DOMINION DOING WORK ON THE CHEAP IN A NEIGHBORHOOD THAT THEY THINK THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH IT. WOULD DOMINION’S CEO WANT THIS THING IN FRONT OF HIS HOUSE?
