$414,000.00 plus $30,000.00

The people I have talked with believe the council made a costly mistake in the decision to move KPU customer service out of its current location.

While we were talking about the issue we came up with some helpful points. The service center should stay where it is... remembering it was moved from downtown to be more convenient to the public that owns it.

The other point made by several folks was if KPU does move near the other providers, KPU still does not offer cell service, so KPU will not be competitive regardless.

If the council is eager to spend $6900.00 per month X 60 months = $414,000.00, plus the $30,000.00 moving cost, then KPU should be open on Saturdays and hire additional service representatives so we could retire the dreaded recording device.
