Wire Down, Finally Down
Blooming Grove officials and the Blooming Grove Police Department tried for weeks to press the Cable Company that allowed a fallen wire to block half of Graycourt Road to no avail. Every few days it dropped lower, and still no response. Concerns grew that sooner or later someone would drive into it in the dark, and then it would be a real danger. This week the Highway Department took matters into their own hands and took the wire down. With this being far from the first time that requests for dangerous wire repair have been ignored, the Blooming Grove Town Board is exploring options to fine the utility companies when they ignore public safety issues.
