I've been trying to get Duke

I've been trying to get Duke power to remove a sagging, unused power line that extends over my farm putting people plowing and harvesting at risk for four years. It does not matter how many times I call, or how many "work orders" are generated- its still there. I finally contacted the attny generals office because there was no other way to get Duke to take it down before it killed somebody. Now I have to wait till July to see if they will finally take it down. Duke power absolutely does not care.

There's no money in it for

There's no money in it for them and it's not like you are going to take your business elsewhere, so they have nothing to gain by doing it.
