Does anybody else think that we have an unusually high frequency of utility service interruptions in Mt Lebanon?

These unfortunate outcomes are remain on-going examples of a broken deregulatory model that should have never been enacted!

Sure thing.

That will be:

Branches - $8/mo,
Pipes - $8/mo,
Lines - $8/mo

Total - $24/mo

Is there anything else you need today? :)

I don't follow you. Were these amounts actually proposed?

Let me ask you, "What is the value of uninterrupted electric power to an elderly resident who requires a respiratory device; or to a hospital with a trauma center?"

Hospitals have emergency generators powered by natural gas and/or enough diesel fuel for 72 hours run time.
