Tree Trimming Continues in Russell

powerOne of the main focuses of the Russell Electric Department during the winter months is tree trimming along city power lines to help reduce the possibility of outages throughout the coming year.

Russell Electric Utilities Director Duane Banks says his line crews work throughout the late fall and early winter to identify and remedy any trouble areas.

Banks further explains the city crew's tree trimming only deals with primary service lines in Russell, meaning the lines that extend from the street to your house are your responsibility.

If you believe the trees in your yard need to be trimmed around your secondary power lines, Banks suggests you contact one of the several area tree trimming local businesses.
