Those of you not at the annual meeting last Saturday missed an earthquake…..
Mike Donald, the FS District Ranger, announced the Forest Service will now permit a phone project to serve all the areas of the lake that do not now have phone service with an overhead system. That means we can now afford the project within the line extension allowances required by California regulators.
The light at the end of a 20 year tunnel. I sure hope it’s not a train…….
Caveats: Individual cabin service drops will be under ground at cabin owner expense. This will not happen over night. I am compiling Forest Service, Plumas County, and HOA documents to support the project. Then we will contact ATT engineering in Chico. They have been reluctant to tackle this project, but PUC regulations don’t allow them to pick and choose. But they can obfuscate. We will be asking for cabin owner support as we move forward.
Of course, people who don’t want a phone don’t have to join in, but back in the early 90’s, over 300 cabins signed three year contracts. I think the support is there.
