I enjoyed reading the very rosy picture the Surprise Independent painted about Wyyerd and the new fiber optic network.
The paper consistently praises and talks about the good things in all articles. That’s nice but not news.
Why didn’t the Independent write about the following things Wyyred has done:
• Broke a gas main, inconveniencing over a thousand Sun City Grand homeowners for days. It was posted they also did it in Sun City West.
• Dug holes in front of driveways and patched concrete with blacktop, not explaining to residents they were or weren’t coming back to replace the black top with concrete.
• Sinkholes developed where they dug and orange cones popped up everywhere. There were three on my street.
• Sub-contractors broke a water and sewer line inconveniencing residents.
As a result, the city stated “Wyyerd has been directed to cease trenching, digging, cutting and clearing in the city of Surprise until the city has reviewed their procedures and practices to ensure work is being done safely and to applicable standards,” stated Bob Wingenroth, city manager, responding to a query from SCG Communications staff.
I think Wyyerd is a great idea to keep Cox in line. I wish however the Surprise Independent would print the actual story instead all the nice stuff.
