B'ville: No Verizon contract yet

Justin Norman has been waiting for Verizon services for two and a half years.

The Van Buren resident questioned the hold up of the service provider's contract at last Tuesday's Van Buren Board meeting, noting that most municipalities in Central New York now offer Verizon services.

Councilor Mary Frances Sabin, a member of the inter-municipal committee negotiating a 10-year contract with Verizon for the village of Baldwinsville and towns of Lysander and Van Buren, said there were two outstanding issues: legal language and clarifying Verizon's commitment to Public Access Channel-Baldwinsville (PAC-B).

"We're working as quickly as we can," she said adding that Verizon has to match what Time Warner currently gives to PAC-B.
