Subject: Broken Telephone Pole on Helene Avenue  

Good day.   We have another broken pole problem, this time at 35 Helene Avenue, Merrick, NY. Please see the attached image.  

I spoke with the resident whose house this broken pole is near. I was told that LIPA had come and instead of replacing the broken pole, they had only placed another pole next to the broken one and tied up some of the wires for support by the new pole, relying on nothing more than a piece of rope. I am still in slack jawed astonishment.  

This broken pole supports power lines, telephone and cable wiring which means as before, that multiple utility services are involved.  

I do NOT want another seven month circus over this pole as happened with the other pole on Merrick Avenue. I therefore ask that you please take the necessary steps to get this situation remedied as soon as humanly possible.  

Thank you.
