New Area Code Meeting Draws Small Audience

The meeting about the new area code for western Kentucky drew a small audience Wednesday. Only three people attended meeting at Hopkinsville Community College. Kentucky Public Service Commission spokesman Andrew Melnykovich says the meeting was held to explain the reasons behind a new area code and the options for adding a new one. One solution is an overlay, which means the 364 area code would apply to all of western Kentucky in addition to the existing 270 area code. The other option is a split. It would divide western Kentucky into two regions and assign either the 270 or 364 area code to each region.
