Holton city crews trimming trees outside city limits
Holton city employee Andrew Hinman took to the bucket truck Thursday morning and used a chainsaw to cut limbs from trees along Q Road (old U.S. Highway 75) south of Holton, just north of 214th Road. The trees were getting a trim as part of Holton’s ongoing efforts to cut limbs and branches away from city power distribution lines, which stretch outside the Holton city limits. City Manager Kerwin McKee said the city’s power lines extend about three miles outside the city in all directions, and trimming trees and brush near the lines is one step the city takes to lessen the possibility of broken power lines due to fallen limbs and branches.
