The City of Afton has contracted with Watts Electric on our electric distribution upgrade project. Watts will be setting new and taller poles along with new and higher voltage lines throughout the City of Afton. The contractor has subcontracted tree trimming and tree removal to McNeill Tree Service as part of the upgrade. This project and voltage of electricity requires a minimum of a 10 foot radius from all energized conductors and no trees shall be permitted to overhang any lines. Branches removed will be cleaned up and hauled away and any trees completely removed will have the stumps taken out, fill dirt placed back and grass seed put in when weather permits.
Please bear with us through this much needed electrical upgrade project.
