In the sidewalk outside 761 E. Mesquite there's a metal stanchion, about three feet long, just sitting there doing nothing other than posing a hazard. We reported this to Edison in December 2014, then followed up in January 2015 when they wrapped hazard warning tape around it and told us that removing it was the responsibility of Verizon. Edison asked Verizon to remove it in early January but when we called Verizon today it had still not been removed.
However we have finally received an assurance that an order has been issued for the removal of this unsightly hazard and that the work will take place tomorrow, February 19th. We hope to have further good news for you shortly. (Read the comments for updates).
