Subject:           Docket 04–53-03 and Docket 99-049-65

                        Redefinition of Properties Purchased by UBTA from Qwest Communications

 

 

         The Division has reviewed and discussed the properties outlined in the petition from UBTA-UBET (Refer to Exhibit 1). It has determined that the inclusion of the properties was an oversight by both Companies at the time of the purchase of the rural exchanges that were later incorporated into UBET. Moreover, Qwest has acknowledged the oversight and agreed that the areas in question were assumed to be transferred at the time of the sale (Refer to Exhibit 2).

 

         The Division recommends that the Commission approve the transfer of the two properties as legally described in UBTA-UBET’s petition.
