You will be hard pressed to find any city with uncrowded utility poles.
I, frankly, don't see this as the city giving google a hard time, but trying to maintain the 40 inch electrical clearance, to avoid safety issues.
What I don't understand is why google didn't see this, didn't they field survey the cities?
Google saw this, as you suggest, in every city
. They didn't care.
Google Fiber Initiative is a social statement by a pair of Billionaires - presumably ready to back the project with megabucks, regardless of the bumps (and delays) in the road. As usual, they still think they're entitled.
If it takes an extra year, so be it.
