Update: (Contrasting what they had announced earlier on Wednesday morning, a NYSEG representative reached out following the publication of this article and informed The Evening Sun that the company had changed plans and would not be contacting residents with further robocalls about this issue. The planned outage is still scheduled to take place and he said the company had attempted to contact all relevant homeowners who would be effected. An update story will appear in tomorrow's Evening Sun)
