Austin Energy crews to prune trees near electric lines in Lakewood

Crews from Austin Energy, the City of Austin’s electric utility, will come to Lakewood starting in about two weeks to prune or remove trees near electric lines. Before work starts, Austin Energy says it will try to contact each property owner with trees that might be affected and work with the owner to reach an agreement on work performed. The process is spelled out in this letter from Austin Energy to the Lakewood HOA.

The National Electric Safety Vode requires Austin Energy to maintain its lines to ensure safety and reliable electric service.
