courthouse Pole.jpg

Photo above shows temporary placement of electric power pole in the middle of street in front of William M. Branch Courthouse in downtown Eutaw, Alabama. The street is partially closed and parking for the Courthouse will be restricted for up to 12 months during the construction of a new water tower behind City Hall. Mayor Raymond Steele indicated at last night’s Eutaw City Council meeting that he was unable to negotiate a better placement for the pole with the Greene County Commission. The community questions whether the city considered all its options for placing the power pole and whether there was a serious effort by the city to work this out with the county.
