Water, Gas, & Light has announced they have eliminated their Fiber Optics Division.
As a result eight people have lost their jobs.
Tom Berry, Interim General Manager with Water, Gas, & Light tells FOX 31 News that they will now open a Telecommunications Division which he says will provide a better service menu for customers.
Berry says, "the Fiber Optics Division has struggled for years. It has not been structured properly. We're making significant changes that we think will be beneficial to our customers. We think we will be able to provide better customer service and a larger menu of services. We just don't have a choice about staying in that area without doing those things."
Jobs postings for the TeleCommunications Division will go up Monday.
