In 2005 the Town purchased a new bucket truck for $80,000, replacing a smaller, unsafe bucket mounted on a pick-up truck.

In 2007, the Town rebuilt over several lines at a cost of over $100,000, and purchased a used pole truck for $27,000.


(2012)-The town has rebuilt over 75% of its lines over the last 5 years at an approximate cost of $600,000. Thereby contributing to fewer power outages because of faulty power lines.
