About Michigan

Michigan learned about NJUNS while attending a Heartland meeting in Ohio during 2001.  State organizational efforts began after that meeting and a Founding Member Agreement for the Michigan Joint Use Notification System (MIJUNS) was signed in 2003.  Consumers Energy volunteered to be the state administrator for the MIJUNS organization.

A pilot program was initiated in the Consumers Energy Lakeshore area in 2004 to determine NJUNS effectiveness.  At the conclusion of the pilot, all participants agreed that NJUNS was an effective tool to communicate pole transfer requests.  NJUNS implementation continued to progress throughout the State thereafter.  Founding members of the Michigan organization included: American Electric Power, Consumers Energy, Detroit Edison, the Michigan Cable Telecommunications Association (MCTA), Michigan Bell Telephone Company d/b/a SBC Michigan (now AT&T) and  Verizon North Inc. (now Frontier North).

MIJUNS holds four business meetings per year within the state.  All members of MIJUNS are welcome to attend or conference call into the meetings.  NJUNS Staff also participates in the meetings. NJUNS users in Michigan must join MIJUNS to obtain access to NJUNS.

NJUNS staff holds semiannual State user meetings for Michigan.  These meetings allow users to discuss NJUNS related issues within the state and allow staff to gain feedback from the users.
