Power pole discussion postponed

A controversial issue has been removed from the Logan Planning Commission’s agenda this Thursday. The commission was scheduled to act on a request to grant a permit for installing power polls that have already been installed on 100 East. Light and Power Director Jeff White will be out of town on Thursday and Community Development Director Jay Nielson says he wants White there when the issue is discussed.White has said he did not seek approval of the poles because he believed their installation during the widening of 100 east was maintenance. He diverted some steel poles from another project and many residents, including Municipal Councilmember Laraine Swenson, consider the poles to be, “ugly.”
