With upgrades completed in the Muirfield Village area, Dublin withdrew its complaint against American Electric Power last week.

City spokesman Michael Racey said the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio approved Dublin's request to withdraw and dismiss a 2008 complaint against AEP.

"The city of Dublin appreciates the aggressive manner in which AEP cooperated with the city and quickly sought to rectify this situation for our residents," City Manager Terry Foegler said in a release. "We received numerous complaints from residents about the performance of the circuit in this area. In response to our inquiries, AEP invested significantly in its local electric infrastructure, providing our residents with the ability to see a marked improvement in the reliability and performance of their electric service."

On Aug. 18, 2008, Dublin issued a complaint against AEP for service issues in the Muirfield Village area that includes 20 percent of the city's residents.

City officials have said the complaint was filed to assure AEP completed the work to solve the outage problems in a timely manner.

Racey said AEP has completed $8.8-million in improvements in the area.

"They were very prompt and efficient with the project," he said.
