|Public meeting scheduled for possible area code change|
A date has been set for a public meeting in Hopkinsville regarding a possible change in area code.
A news release from the Kentucky Public Service Commission says the local meeting will be Wednesday, October 17th at 6pm at the Hopkinsville Community College Auditorium.
Officials will discuss the options and process for the creation of a new area code for all of or a portion of western Kentucky. The change could apply to all numbers in areas Christian County and west—or could only apply to all new numbers registered in the current 270 area code.
The second option would require every phone call to be a 10-digit affair. The proposed new area code is 364—which spells out “dog” on your keypad. It would take effect sometime before 2014, if approved.
