Meetings Held On Possible New Area Code In Western Ky.

Posted: Updated:

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Public Service Commission will hold six meetings to discuss the options and process for the creation of a new area code in all or part of western Kentucky.

The meetings will be held in Hopkinsville on October 17, Paducah on October 18, Henderson on October 22, Owensboro on October 24, Bowling Green on October 29 and Elizabethtown on October 30.

Area code 270 is projected to run out of available numbers by the first quarter of 2014.

Plans under consideration include an overlay of a second area code and a split, which would assign area code 364 to a portion of the current area code 270 territory.
