My neighbor's were having some problems with the electricity in their house. In order to fix the problem TXU sent out a repair crew. The junction box that they needed to get to was in my front yard, so when we came home we were surprised to see a waist deep hole between our sidewalk and house. I understand the electric company has a right to repair items in an easment, but what are their obligations for repairing the area where the work was completed (replacement of grass, sprinkler system, etc...)? In this case they did a resonable job cleaning up the area and filling the hole, but did not leave the sprinkler system in the same condition as it was when they arrived (sprinkler head missing/buried and not working properly). Also, I'm surprised that they did not at least left a note or something at our house explaining they were there with contact information in case we had any questions.

The City of Frisco is currently working on a Right Of Way (ROW) Ordinance that will allow us to prevent these problems and provide enforcement procedures in the future. Thank you for your comments.

Gary, do we not currently have a requirement that they repair any damage, such as the sprinkler? What is the time frame to have the ROW ordinance before us?
