A third party mows both mine, and the neighbor's yards. He has the cable strung thru the trees, and over the fences and bushes. Obviously, it was put there to provide service (cable or pipeline) to one of the neighbors. Charter cannot confirm, or deny that, but, of course, they have no record of the cable existing. They are such a cluster----.
One tech, who was here, told me, they (Charter) is within their easement zone. Moron! Which, they are...but still, no utility can leave a live cable just laying across the ground. I'd estimate the distance between the boxes to be 750', but the cable run is about 900'. The installers always leave extra, so the burial crew has enough to "work" with. So, it is "S'd" along the ground and through the trees, etc.
Done the BBB thing....dead end, and I've contacted Nixon's office. Short of retaining counsel and filing a formal property infringement action, there's no legal options available.
I am going to check out the Post columnist...thanks for that, Dan.
