Charter Communications – regarding the existing poles and the service along C.T.H. ‘HHH’, Charter will have an outage in the transfer of the utility.  Charter has to provide a 30 day notice because of all the municipalities affected (Area from Ridgeway to Cassville).  The existing Charter wire on the poles and the Charter service on the ‘mound’ at the intersection cannot be disturbed until after the 30 day notice.  Ultimately, this means the final landscaping and grading along ‘HHH’ will not be completed until after Charter is through.
