Logan Light and Power won’t have to paint poles

LOGAN, Utah (AP) — Logan Light and Power won’t have to paint steel power poles that city officials said were erected without a permit.Power officials didn’t seek a permit to install the steel poles, assuming the replacements were routine maintenance of the city’s transmission line. But a community development director later ordered Light and Power to get a permit for the poles, which were already installed.In April the planning commission ordered that the poles be painted brown. But more than 60 people living on the street where the poles are signed a petition asking that the city spend the money elsewhere.Painting the poles was estimated to cost as much as $20,000 per pole.An appeals board overturned the commission’s painting order.
