$347,040 Spent by Bell on Modernization Northwestern Bell spent $347,040 for growth and modernization in Carroll in 1975, according to Wayne Weeks, manager. Part of the total $347,040 was spent in the central office for additional call handling equipment. Buried cable was placed in the Parkview addition and along Grant Road. This was done to replace cables used to capacity and provide for future growth. In late March an ice storm caused major damage to poles and wires above ground.
