You're absolutely right rose! Strong winds and trees can act apart of the power outage equation also!

Every person that comments on SooToday.com regarding the PUC has no clue what they are talking about!! They
don't understand why the PUC spent the money on a new building, or how it was funded. What if it cost the same amount of money or more to upgrade the old buildings to current standards, so they could keep the power on and water running? Would that have been ok? Get the facts straight. Then complain. Most people don't even realize how the PUC runs as a business or what is involved.

I personally challenge everyone person who has an issue with the new PUC Building, the water quality, the power outages, or any other issue regarding PUC to show up at city counsel and express your feelings. You may be surprise at the explanation you get. But then again who am I kidding. Most people who make the negative comments on here are to lazy or intoxicated by 6pm to make it to a counsel meeting. Just a fact people, look in the mirror before you start pointing the finger.
