EMERGENCY ORDER AUTHORIZING CERTAIN
TARIFF AND RULE WAIVERS FOR CENTEL
Hurricane Opal has caused extensive damage in the Florida Panhandle. Central Telephone Company of Florida (Centel) and other telecommunications companies are working to render some temporary relief in the area. In order to accommodate emergency conditions and provide needed services expeditiously, there may be the need for telecommunications companies to provide service in a manner not consistent with the normal Commission filing and review process for tariffs and rules.
At the October 10, 1995 Agenda Conference, the Commission authorized certain emergency procedures to facilitate the offering of needed services. See Order No. PSC-92-0910-FOF-TP. Order No. 92-0910 delegated the authority to the following persons, in the order listed
, to approve any temporary waivers of rules, tariffs or orders until such waivers could be reviewed by the Commission: the Chairman, the most senior Commissioner available
, the Executive Director, the Deputy Executive Director-Technical, and the Director of the Division of Communications.
On November 9, 1995, Centel filed a tariff to waive for a limited time the nonrecurring service connection charges for the installation of temporary service requested by residential and business customers. Under the tariff
, this waiver would expire January 1, 1996. Further, the tariff is limited to customers in the following exchange areas:
DEFUNIAK SPRINGS SANTA ROSA BEACH
DESTIN SEAGROVE BEACH
FT. WALTON BEACH SHALIMAR
Upon consideration, the tariff shall be approved. The authority granted herein is contingent on approval by the full Commission.
Based on the foregoing, it is
ORDERED by Chairman Susan F. Clark that the tariff filing by Central Telephone Company of Florida proposing to waive certain charges for temporary service is approved as set forth in the body of this Order. It is further
ORDERED that this docket shall remain open.
By ORDER of Chairman Susan F. Clark, as Prehearing Officer, this 22nd day of November, 1995.
