Madison Gas & Electric will be in Monona beginning this month to replace some power poles and trim trees if necessary to accommodate the new and taller poles. MG&E crews may need to be on or adjacent to residential property in order to access their overhead lines and poles. Approximately 250 poles are scheduled to be replaced.
Service outages are expected to be minimal and will be coordinated with affected property owners in advance. Any tree pruning will also be coordinated in advance, and all pruning will be planned by ISA-certified arborists.
Residents with questions or concerns can contact email@example.com or call (608) 252-7000 and mention "Monona Upgrade."
