This order cancels the private pay telephone certificate of Weber Communications, LLC.
On November 9, 2012, the Staff of the Missouri Public Service Commission filed a motion requesting Weber’s certificate to provide private pay telephone service in the State of Missouri be canceled.
In Case Number PA-2004-0084, the Commission granted Weber a certificate of service authority to provide private pay telephone service in the State of Missouri via customer-owned coin-operated telephone equipment.
Staff’s motion states that the company requested cancellation of its certificate of service authority. Staff recommends that the Commission cancel Weber’s certificate of service authority as the company is no longer providing service in Missouri.
On November 13, 2012, the Commission issued an Order Directing Notice allowing any parties to file an objection or request a hearing to do so no later than November 26, 2012. No objections or requests for a hearing were filed.
The Commission has the authority to cancel a certificate and tariff pursuant to Section 392.410.5, RSMo (Supp. 2010), which states, in part, “[a]ny certificate or service authority may be altered or modified by the commission after notice and hearing, upon its own motion or upon application of the person or company affected.”
Based on Weber’s request and Staff’s motion, the Commission finds that the private payphone certificate granted to Weber Communications, LLC, shall be canceled.
