“BellSouth, city spar over fiber appeal”

The Advertiser today carries a story on the city’s appeal that the Advocate had yesterday; I commented on the basic tale then but Advertiser has some significant new information:

BellSouth’s shenanigans are costing you money. And you can begin to estimate the cost:

LUS has spent more than $125,000 on legal fees since the July 16 election defending the fiber project in court and before the Public Service Commission, said LUS Director Terry Huval. Some invoices also are outstanding, so the legal cost will be even higher, he said.

125,000 dollars and counting.
