Split Cottage Grove City Council approves electrical undergrounding project
Despite being torn on the idea of spending more than $166,000 to bury a handful of electrical poles underground, the Cottage Grove City Council voted 3-2 last month to move the project forward.
Council members Derrick Lehrke and Dave Thiede cast the dissenting votes on May 15.
The project consists of undergrounding electrical poles at the construction sites on East Point Douglas Road from Menards to the Walmart site and 70th Street from Joliet Avenue to Highway 19.
