As a result of the power outage early Monday morning, Staff contacted We Energies to better understand the reason for the service lapse and the plan to mitigate the same moving forward. It was conveyed to us that a branch fell in the early AM hours (outside of our community) on Monday and knocked out a power line. We then asked to see any sort of planned maintenance program where their arborists/crews intend to work to free their power lines from branches, limbs, and other obstructions. Areas 1200 and 1201 will be trimmed over the next several months. Active trimming is occurring in area 1201 and trimming in the 1200 area is projected to begin in July.
