Locating service lines was discussed at the Erath County Commissioners meeting Monday, but CenturyLink was unavailable for assistance. Changes in local leadership seem to have uprooted a partnership with the county. Commissioner Herbert Brown was told recently that technician’s assistance was not available, and the county would be held financially liable if a line was damaged during road repairs. In the past, a local company representative provided immediate on-site assistance, but CenturyLink managers said the former employee was violating company procedure when providing that level of support.
Brown said asking taxpayers to foot the bill was not the answer and urged CenturyLink representatives to find a more amicable solution.
