GREENE TOWNSHIP - “Bill Taninies, Blue Ridge Communications District Manager, indicated to me a few weeks ago that there are not enough customers to expand service on Sawmill Road or Mozzette Road,” Supervisor Gary Carlton reported at the April Greene Township supervisors' meeting.
“I spent three hours with Taninies showing him the growth in areas of the Township,” noted Supervisor Gary Carlton.
“Five residents on Sawmill Road signed a petition to get connected with Blue Ridge,” Carlton continued. “Blue Ridge would have less than a half of a mile to run wire. They were looking seriously at completing service on Valley View Road. A resident there had paid Blue Ridge to run cable to his home.”
“What is Blue Ridge's proposal if Greene Supervisors do not sign the franchise agreement in May?,” questioned Solicitor Jeffrey Treat. “I will review the 1998 franchise contract and contact the Blue Ridge legal department.”
The supervisors appointed Wayne Garafola to approach Adams Cable to assess their willingness to provide service in Greene Township.
Greene Township supervisors meet on the first Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m. at the township building on Brink Hill Road in Greentown.
