It’s a continuation and extension of our basic utility functions.” Providing cable through NBU will be cheaper for local residents than current services offered by Communications Services Inc., Sohn said. “No I don’t think they could" offer the service cheaper, said Communications Services President Bruce Plankinton. “Looking all around the country at the typical municipal cable TV operations, the cost is considerably less than what people are paying here.” —NBU General Manager Bob Sohn Moving into cable services is a “business judgment they have to make,” he said. “I don’t believe it will hun our business. I’m not concerned with competition. I think we would still provide better service ” “I see a definite benefit to all our people,” Sohn said. "We’re already equipped for this — it’s just a natural. We don’t want to put these people out of business.” See CABLE, Page 2 After a successful run, Troutfest ‘89 ended last weekend with more than 10O rainbow trout left uncaught. Today, Aquatics Director Marcus Tonish, left, and parks department employee Roland Sanchez drained the spring-fed pool and released the trout, mostly 3-pounders, into Landa Lake.
