On March 15, 2006, the city paid AEP $21,820.80 to remove several poles along the 300 block of First Avenue, but have not received word as to when that project will be completed.
As part of the energy savings program being performed by Ameresco Energy Inc., and to improve the view along the riverbanks, the city opted to have that stretch of electrical line buried and the poles removed, yet eight months later, they still stand.
According to a representative of AEP, a meeting within AEP will take place today regarding the project and the city will be contacted soon after to discuss a schedule for completion.
In other business:
There are two positions, one on the historical review board and one on the civic service board, that still need to be filled.
Interested parties may speak to either a commissioner or contact the city clerk at 441-6004.
