The Underground

Perhaps the "electric undergrounding [sic]" utilities are not the only things we should consider burying in addition to the already entombed asbestos.

Thanks for the reply. My concern is that the budget crisis will never be over (especially with legislated tax cuts and a possibly new homestead ruling) and this franchise fund will now be the cash cow to balance deficits. You are correct about the street light funding. The payment for street light installations and for the operating costs of street lights (which was previously paid for from the regular operating budget) was added after the ordinance was passed and put a huge burden on the undergrounding program which resulted in a significant delay in the program from original plans.

Mr. Arceri,

I believe that it was a consensus of this Council at the budget workshop to continue the under-grounding of electrical lines after the budget crisis is over. The decision of Council was between cutting other capital projects and operating programs or continue placing streetlights on S. Collier, which apparently was not part of the original agreement. From comments I’ve received from some residents of S. Collier (south of Winterberry), they have no wish to replicate the excessive (their word) placement of streetlights to the north of them.

At any rate, I agree that the whole island should utilize underground electrical lines for all of the reasons you stated in your email. Thank you for your continued interest in island affairs.

Chuck Kiester
