Egg Harbor looks to bury power lines

Your days of seeing power lines in some part of the village of Egg Harbor may be numbered. 

 

The Village of Egg Harbor Board of Trustees is set to discuss the topic at their Monday night board meeting when they discuss what they would like done with the area’s utilities as a part of the upcoming State Highway 42 road reconstruction project. Discussion about burying the power lines was during the village’s public information meetings about the project on August 2nd and 3rd.

 

During the village’s Parks and Public Works Committee meeting, the project was approved in its entirety, including the burial of the power lines. By burying the powerlines, the Village of Egg Harbor would spend approximately $2.3 million, which is over a million dollars more than installing fiberglass utility similar to what was done in Fish Creek. That plan would cost the village approximately $1.2 million. The difference is approximately $55 a year for Egg Harbor taxpayers according to documents from the village.  Ahead of the board of trustees meeting, the village received nine emails detailing their support for burying the powerlines.
