Answer

As I understand it, the old lines needed to be upgraded to handle the increasing demand in Heber City and Midway. I am not a fan of above ground power lines, but I also know putting those lines underground is a very expensive process. It is actually something I would like to see a vote on. In the last election there was a bond that passed to purchase open space in the county. It would be interesting to see if an increase in rates at Heber Light and Power or a city sales tax increase to pay for lines to be buried would pass. I am for buried lines, but the voters or users would really need to decide because they will pay for it in the end.
