A 4-County Electric Power Association contract crew has begun work in the New Hope community of the co-op’s Lowndes County service area.

Osmose Inc. is treating and inspecting wooden 4-County poles. Crews will be in the area for about four weeks.

The work involves inspecting and treating wooden poles in the area. The inspection and work require digging around poles, which means Osmose employees will sometimes be working in 4-County members’ yards and/or properties.

The workers will be wearing clothing clearly identifying them as Osmose workers and their trucks will also have 4-County contractor signs.

For more information, call 4-County at 1-800-431-1544.
