If you are going up I-80 towards Truckee and get off at Colfax you'll eventually run into a small town called Iowa Hill. --Monday, for the very first time they are getting phone service. The California Public Utilities Commission is putting up the $2.5 million to add the phone lines. There is cell phone coverage, but it is spotty. The town is still waiting on electricity, because it has no central source for that either.
