According to the article "The city [Indianapolis] filed a lawsuit earlier this month accusing AT&T of causing $660,000 in overtime payments to contractors on the project that snarled traffic for four years." In another incident "Neighbors in the 1500 block of Reeves said a green AT&T junction box containing many wires used to be by the side of the old roadway. But the light green box now is now stranded in the gravel road bed where paving crews intend to lay a new lane, if the phone company's lines and box are moved. 'AT&T crews came out and they fixed the box and left it in the middle of the road rather than move it out of the way,' a frustrated resident said." AT&T denies hearing about several of the construction projects."
The time spent on any item of the agenda [of a finance committee] will be
in inverse proportion to the sum involved.
