PUBLIC NOTICE: Pole Inspections

The City of Grand Forks Public Works Department, along with the assistance of Gilnockie Inspection will be conducting a condition assessment of approximately 540 of our power poles. This will require both an above and below ground inspection. As a general rule, most power poles are on public property however, in the event that they may need to access City owned poles on private property, an attempt will be made to inform the owner by knocking on their door when the inspectors are onsite. This inspection is to ensure continued reliability of the power system which in turn supports public safety.

We thank you for your cooperation, any questions or comments may be directed to the Public Works office at (250) 442-4148 or info@grandforks.ca.
