11.  Our Street/ROW cut fee for utilities is being questioned. We are charging $100 for the first 50 feet and $10 per foot over the first 50 feet. Comcast needs to cut the street on Buttermilk Road for a distance of 340 feet. Their contractor is saying that the cost is higher than other municipalities. Supervisor Bumbaugh has contacted Cohen Law Group and had them review our fee since this is their specialty. The Law Group does not feel that the fee is unreasonable. The contractor must stay 2 feet under the swale along the road. And we would like a set of as builts when the project is completed. Supervisor Bumbaugh is going to bill them according to our fee schedule.
