House by house, address by address, City Electric crews worked from early Friday morning until 9 p.m. and then were back on the job Saturday at 7 a.m. to make sure that all residents had power by the end of the day.

Nearly 200 separate outages were dealt with during the 48-hour period, along with some major repairs to circuits and broken power poles.  Some of the employees left their own families without power in order to work on the outages in Statesville.

In many of the cases, the customer had to bring in an electrician first, but Statesville crews were there as soon as the work was completed so power could be restored.

If you are still without power, call 704-878-3479.  The automated system will record the call and automatically page the Electrical Utilities Department.

Statesville City crews are working throughout the City to pick up and haul the limbs and yard debris left from last week’s ice storm.  The process will go a lot quicker if the guidelines for limb pick-up are followed:

· Limbs should be cut into lengths of three to four feet and placed on the curb.

· Limbs and branches more than ten inches in diameter should be placed in a separate pile on the curb.

· Do not mix leaves and limbs.

· Do not place large piles of debris under electric lines.

· Be considerate of traffic and pedestrians – streets and sidewalks should not be blocked if at all possible.

Scott Harrell, Interim Public Works Director, indicated that for the next two weeks, the $25 fee, usually charged for large amount of debris, will be waived for storm-related debris only.

Collection of storm debris (limbs and yard waste) continues, but there is a lot more than originally thought.  Crews have been trying to cover the same area where the garbage trucks are working, but with the large amount of debris to pick-up, the City has gotten behind.

Crews are working overtime to remove the debris, so please be patient.  The City is continuing to waive the fees for large amounts of debris (storm debris only).

If you have questions about the pick-up, please call 704-878-3415.
