Potential Crisis - 27 East

Potential Crisis

With the recent replacement of telephone poles in Bridgehampton by PSEG-Long Island, we understood that Optimum and perhaps other cable operations were responsible for repositioning and hanging the displaced lines. In our neighborhood, we see, at best, unsightly, tangled cable and box arrays in front of residences hanging free and blowing in the wind, and, at worst, a potential for equipment falling on moving vehicles or cables entangling children on bicycles, for starters.

Calls to Optimum yield complete ignorance of the issue (and I personally can pay for the corrective action). PSEG is attempting to get Optimum’s attention, thank you, and Code Enforcement in Southampton Town has no sway at this time.

Before there is a health or safety crisis precipitated by this situation, might the responsible parties step up with the corrective action needed? Thank you!
