A man claims utility poles are preventing him from launching his business

Since he can't build a driveway, a White County man's business has been closed for years.

A year later, Andrew McClogan bought land north of Cabot on Highway 5. That 40-foot problem stands in the way of his first customer.

The driveway is blocked by utility poles. He paid for a survey that revealed the property border and the utility poles.

A decade ago, McClogan bought the site and discovered the poles, but had no idea how much they would cost to move.

A few thousand bucks to move the poles seemed reasonable. “I didn't expect $10,000,” he remarked. “Now $18,000.”

McClogan says the issue isn't fully resolved, but that Andrew's Auto Sales remains closed.
