The Electric Department is replacing a transmission pole on Sawmill Creek Road near Allen Marine this weekend. The work is scheduled to begin on Saturday, May 5th at 8 a.m. or Sunday, May 6th at 8 a.m., weather permitting.
Several hundred Sitkans lost power in the early hours this morning (04-23-18). The cause was a planned switching of units at the Green Lake Dam. The Electric Department is also planning an outage for Saturday, April 28th to replace a power pole near the National Cemetery.
