Messy Pole
Enthusiast - Level 1

I have contacted our local electric company PSEG Long Island about our concerns about a pole located in Sayville, NY 11782. PSEG Long Island has informed us that it is Verizon's pole. For about two years this telephone pole has been unsightly. A rope has been tied to a tree on the other side of the sidewalk to support it and several loose wires have been hanging and unsupported for just about as long. There has been a metal support brace lying on the ground along the sidewalk for a lengthy time as well. A new pole has been installed, but no one has cleaned up the area or removed the rope to the tree or the old pole. Who is responsible for this mess?

Re: Messy Pole

Of course it’s verizon. The NYS Municipal Construction Surcharge is what all us New Yorkers are paying. Then when it’s for moving or removing poles after getting a bogus surcharge in the gazillion of dollars each month, they play dumb.

i would call your local engineers office or department of public works to have them assist. You could also contact the NYS Public Service Commission 

they have a toll free number to contact them. 

Amazing collecting millions per month and still won’t do what they already collected money for. 1-800-VERIZON is their number but good luck.
