TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WIVB) - Thanks to a call from News 4, a Tonawanda resident is seeing results after almost a year of getting the runaround.
Susan Lettieri had tried for months to get Verizon to repair a utility pole that was falling down on her property. The wires were dangerously low, and Lettieri was worried the pole would fall through her fence.
News 4 called Verizon on Friday and after speaking with a spokesman, the company sent a supervisor to Lettieri's home within an hour. The supervisor promised Lettieri's pole would be top priority and crews returned on Monday to start fixing the problem.
Verizon does say that Time Warner Cable also has lines attached to the leaning pole, so the cable company will have to come out to move those.
