Earlier this summer I complained to the NYS Public Service Commission and to Verizon about split Verizon poles. Some of the poles have been split for months/years.
Some residents expressed concern about the poles. Verizon assigned a contact to address the problems and some progress has been made. If there are split telephone poles in your area please advise and I will reach out to my contact and get the poles replaced.
The following progress report was sent to me by the Verizon liaison. If you are not satisfied with the work that has been done please let me know. I will follow up.
