Town of Paradise Valley officials have been given the proverbial head nod to explore a proposed method to finish under-grounding utility lines that could cost affected residents thousands of dollars.
The Town of Paradise Valley has been undergrounding overhead utility lines from Salt River Project and Arizona Public Service Electric Company for several years.
Since 1991, 19 SRP districts have been undergrounded, while more than 30 APS districts have been buried, town officials say.
In preparation to begin talking about the fiscal year 2017-22 Capital Improvement Program, town staff presented the elected leaders with a proposed method to complete the last four SRP districts.
