Area Code Meetings Coming Up in Paducah, Elsewhere
By WestKyStar Staff
FRANKFORT, KY - The Kentucky Public Service Commission will hold six meetings including one Oct. 18 in Paducah to discuss the options and process for the creation of a new area code in all or part of western Kentucky.

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, acording to WHAS.

For people who can't attend a meeting, the PSC has produced a YouTube video. Find the video at the link below.
