Alright guys I bought my house in Aug 07. The over head line pulled out of the house side in Oct 07. That was the first time I tried to get a permit to move the over head line up and set it on a pole above the gutter hight. The line sags so much the I can stand flat on the ground and grab it.
They denied me the permit, no big deal I thought just had the electric company reattach to the house. It can wait until spring.
Spring time rolls around the river goes over the levee and my house floods. In June 08 I am ready to have the electric restored to my house. The city denies me a permit agian to to raise the overhead wires. Wanting to get me and the family back into the house I said screw it tell the sparky just put it back the way it was so I can move in.
Now it's Oct 09 and they denied the permit again. Said they sent some one out to look at it and said it was high enough for code. That is BS they make us put our temp poles in at 14' above grade.
What is my next move? I would really like these wires to be even 10' of the ground minimum.
