CLAY COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) -- Clay County officials said contract workers will begin working on inspecting and treating wooden 4-County electric poles in the county starting Monday.
The company says the workers, hired from Osmose, will have to dig around poles to treat them, including those in member's yards. However, workers will be clearly marked with Osmose on their clothing and trucks will have 4-County contractor signs as well.
4-County Manager of Engineering Lynn Timbrook says each pole is required to be inspected and treated on a 10 year cycle to consider which poles need to be replaced and to extend the lives of the poles in service.
This most current round of pole inspections will start in the Pheba community and should continue for approximately two months.
