Rotten pole a danger
There may be questions over its ownership — but there is no doubt about the danger it poses.
Halls Road, St Michael resident Rondel Lynch wants the utility company responsible to remove a badly rotted pole (above and right) that is leaning dangerously outside his home.
Lynch reported that after complaining about the danger, the Barbados Light & Power Company sent a crew to plant a new pole and shift the wires from the old to the new.
However, he charged that when he questioned why the pole had not been removed, BL&P personnel told him the pole was not theirs.
“Right now I don’t care who owns the pole,” Lynch said. “I just want it removed before it falls and damages my vehicle or injures someone.” (RRM)
