POLAND, Ohio (WKBN) – A temporary stop work order has been issued for Comcast as crews work to expand service in the Poland area.

Comcast has been putting in service boxes in the township. Township Trustee Eric Ungaro confirmed permits for the work were approved at the state level, however, the permitting process locally is still being worked out, so the stop work order was issued Friday as the county engineer looks into that process, Ungaro said

Comcast filed a video authorization amendment with the Ohio Department of Commerce in November 2022 to expand service in the area.

Areas targeted for new service in Mahoning County include Beaver Township, Boardman Township, Poland Township, Poland Village, Struthers and Washington Township
