"Providing Hometown Reliability"
Tree limbs growing into high voltage electrical wires can be a deadly combination. Not only are they dangerous, but they can cause inconvenient power outages. It is part of our job at MMU to trim, remove limbs, and remove trees along easements and public rights-of-way so that trees do not come into contact with high voltage electrical wires. This is done for the purpose of public safety and reliability of electrical service.
If you have a tree that is growing close to power lines, please do not attempt to trim it yourself. Call us at (660)886-6966 and we will remove any limbs needed to obtain proper clearance from the electric lines, free of charge.
In November of 2002 the Board of Public Works authorized the purchase of a Manlift Backyard Machine. This is a small machine used in backyards, walkways and confined areas, and is equipped with a digger and load line for setting poles. It has a bucket attachement used for transferring material on poles and tree trimming. The new unit will give our crews access to areas that were once unreachable with our larger equipment. This purchase will hopefully make the next ice storm more bearable.
