Last night, the Oro Valley council voted 6-1 to spend $2.1 million, using contingency reserve funds, to underground utility lines along Oracle and Tangerine roads in a three-project proposal brought forth by Tucson Electric Power several months ago.

TEP, which does not generally run utility lines underground, originally brought the item forth to council because the Town’s zoning code prohibits aboveground lines except under certain conditions.

The full story will be available in next week's publication, as well as on www.explorernews.com.
