Public pays: Following the massive damage to utility lines during the December snowstorms we read that fiber optic service would not be replaced along Lake Wenatchee’s south shore due to the very high cost. Then on Jan. 18 we received an email from the PUD, backed up by an article in the Jan. 20 Wenatchee World, saying that it would be replaced. The number of customers along the south shore was given as “approximately” 64 in the email, and “approximately” 80 in the World article. Doesn’t the PUD know how many customers are affected? Does this “approximate” number mean actual customers? Potential customers? Full-time residents? Weekend rentals? A combination of these, or what? The cost of replacing the fiber has been a moving target, too. The latest figure given in The World is “approximately” $750,000.
