Many people in Port Washington want their electric power lines to be installed underground, but do not accept having to pay the cost of $4 million to $6 million per mile themselves ["Paying to bury power lines," Editorial, March 28].
East Hampton residents similarly don't want to pay the $30 million it would cost PSEG Long Island -- and, ultimately, its other customers -- to bury their electric lines.
Here's my King Solomon-like plan sure to please both parties: Each community will simply pay for the other community's underground wires, much like they both want us to pay for theirs. Case closed!
