HILLSVILLE — With cooperation from utility companies, the estimated cost of moving electric, phone and cable lines in Hillsville is much less than what town officials expected to pay.
Hillsville Town Council heard the good news at its Jan. 14 meeting.
“It will only be a third of the price we were always told it would be,” said Town Manager Larry South.
Removing the unsightly utility lines from in front of historic buildings, like the old Carroll courthouse and the Carter Home, has long been a wish list item in downtown revitalization discussions.
