Power to the people
Something's got to go -- the power line or the trees.
That's the message St. Croix Electric officials have delivered to Arvid and Mona Flanum of rural New Richmond.
St. Croix Electric has indicated that large pines trees on the Flanum's property have to be removed immediately, or the couple has to pay to have an overhead power line on their property buried. The trees have grown up and engulfed power lines that provide electricity to the neighborhood.
