OC15-006 In the Matter of the Complaint filed by TrioTel Communications (TrioTel), Salem, South Dakota, against Twedt Construction (Twedt), Montrose, South Dakota, for an incident occurring on March 5, 2015, 2015 at 630 E. Essex Ave., Salem, S.D.
On March 6, 2015 Trio filed a complaint against Twedt, alleging that Twedt cut a fiber optic line without calling SD One (Call). On March 23, 2015, Trio requested withdrawal of the Complaint.
Twedt responded to the complaint on March 25, 2015 by stating they were a subcontractor and there was a miscommunication between the prime contractor and Twedt. Twedt went on to state that they plan to call for locates regardless of the prime contractor’s previous locates or information on location of lines.
Today, shall the Enforcement Panel of the South Dakota One Call Notification Board find that there is probable cause that Twedt violated any statute or rule under the jurisdiction of the Board, and if so shall a civil penalty be assessed?
