Re: BPU Approves Proposed Stipulation Agreement

Dear Mayor:

The League would like to update you of new developments regarding the proposed stipulation agreement between Verizon and the Board of Public Utilities (Board) staff. This proposed agreement was outlined to you recently:

May 12th Letter

May 18th Letter

Today, the Board’s commissioners voted unanimously to approve the proposed stipulation agreement.

To be clear, this agreement will not be fully effective until the Board issues an order implementing it. Once the order has been received, the League will review it and determine how to proceed.

In the meantime it is important for the League to understand the scope of the problem which municipalities are having with Verizon’s landline service quality.

We would ask that you send a detailed description of your municipality’s problem to Ed Purcell Esq. at

Very truly yours,

William G. Dressel, Jr.
Executive Director
