A number of small businesses and residents along a stretch of Lundy's Lane in Niagara Falls are furious with Niagara Peninsula Energy.
The utility is installing new, concrete hydro polls at the expense of the handful of trees that dot the historic street, according to those opposed to the work.
They say trees have been cut down or badly damaged in order to get the poles up.
The issue was brought up at Monday's city council meeting and NPEI was ordered to halt the work and consult residents but business owners tell 610 CKTB News, that hasn't happened.
As a result, the business owners and residents are blocking the workers with their vehicles.
It's unclear if that has stopped the work. Calls to Niagara Peninsula Energy have not been returned.
