“We are pleased to provide the service bucket to the City of Waldron,” said Jeff Milford, SWEPCO External Affairs Manager for the Fayetteville District. “It’s a great way to continue our partnership with the community and meet their needs for equipment to enhance the services they provide to the citizens of Waldron.”
The truck is a 2004 Ford F550 Altec AT37G, the type of bucket truck typically used by SWEPCO servicers, also known as troublemen.
“The bucket truck will help the city with street light replacement, traffic light maintenance, plant maintenance on upper levels, hanging Christmas lights and other responsibilities, with a significant improvement in safety,” said Waldron Mayor Neil Cherry.
