Telecomez Corporation (2004.0268); A-311091
By the Commission:
Telecomez Corporation (Telecomez) has failed to pay its $10 general assessment for 2004-2005 pursuant to section 510(c) of the Public Utility Code. 66 Pa.C.S. § 510(c). Telecomez is a telecommunications interexchange reseller certificated at A-311091. On October 27, 2004, Commission staff sent by certified mail a notice to Telecomez that its 2004-2005 annual assessment was overdue. The notice came back as unclaimed, return to sender. All other attempts by Commission staff to reach the company have proven unsuccessful, and its last known telephone number is now the number for a private residence. The Commission has also never received Telecomez's 2003 Annual Report.
The Commission puts the industry on notice that we will not hesitate to invoke our authority under the Public Utility Code to ensure timely compliance with our regulations and orders including the ordering of such other remedy as the Commission may deem appropriate. 66 Pa.C.S. §§ 504, 505, 506, and 3301. Based on the above and because of Telecomez's failure to pay its general assessment for 2004-2005 and file its 2003 Annual Report, we believe it is appropriate to revoke Telecomez's certificate of public convenience without the necessity of a formal complaint, and we tentatively conclude that revocation of Telecomez's certificate of public convenience pursuant to 66 Pa.C.S. § 1102(a)(2) is in the public interest. Furthermore, the Commission may take other appropriate action, including the imposition of penalties under section 3301, in lieu of cancellation, if Telecomez seeks relief from this Tentative Order; Therefore,
It Is Ordered That:
1. Revocation of Telecomez Corporation's certificate of public convenience is hereby tentatively approved as being in the public interest.
2. The Secretary serve a copy of this Tentative Order upon the Office of Consumer Advocate, the Office of Small Business Advocate, and the Office of Trial Staff, and also cause a copy of this Tentative Order to be published in the Pennsylvania Bulletin with a 30-day comment period.
3. Absent the filing of adverse public comment within 30 days after publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin, this Tentative Order shall become final without further action by the Commission.
4. Upon this order becoming final and without further action by the Commission, the certificate of public convenience held by Telecomez Corporation at A-311091 shall be canceled, and Telecomez Corporation's name stricken from all active utility lists maintained by the Commission's Bureau of Fixed Utility Services and the Assessment Section of Administrative Services.
