Before poles can come down, providers need to bury lines
Utility poles
A new decorative light pole installed recently by the city of Camden (left) stands next to an old wooden utility pole that has yet to be removed at the corner of Greene and Lyttleton streets. City Manger Mel Pearson said Camden is still working with AT&T and TruVista to have the two internet and cable TV providers move their lines underground into conduits already prepared by the city. - photo by Martin L.

Once again, people in Camden’s historic district and elsewhere around town are complaining about old utility poles not being removed well after electric lines have been placed underground and decorative light fixtures installed.
