But there is an easement, Ed paid a buck for it away back when.
Just because they paid $1 to place the pole does actually mean I have an easement! Actually easement has to include route etc. for the overhead wiring and the sizes etc. of the area required for the pole and guy wires. They still may not have a true easement. This is also kind of evident by the fact they are willing to locate new poles and move the line!
