As a Miami-loving citizen and an individual against unnecessary clutter, I’d like to draw some attention and perhaps find a solution to the mysteriously unexplained duplicity of electric, cable, telephone and lighting transmission poles.
It’s alarming to contemplate how new poles are erected while the old ones irresponsibly remain in place, abandoned and forgotten without a justifiable purpose.
There seems to be no oversight by the city or county, and no one knows who is accountable for removing the obsolete structures, so we are doomed to live indefinitely in a forest of deceased poles.
Meanwhile, the views from our homes are often composed of two, three and, on occasion, four permanently deteriorated, slanting poles.
It’s unfortunate that all this is happening under the gaze of those who should enforce the codes, regulations and resolutions of the area.
