COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) – An electrical grid is only as good as its poles.
4-County is sending contract workers to inspect and treat everyone of its poles in Lowndes and Noxubee Counties.
The work will require a little digging.
That means you could find a stranger in your yard.
His clothes will be clearly marked with the company name Osmose, and his truck will have a 4-County contractor sign on it.
This latest round of inspections is part of a 10 year cycle.
It began this week and should last about 3 months.
