North Arkansas Electric Cooperative has contracted with Progressive Solutions to treat the rights-of-way in parts of its service area.
Contractors only will spray herbicides on unmaintained areas and fence rows. Treatment will begin around the first of September and should be completed within three to five weeks. Uniformed contract crews will work out of trucks with the Progressive Solutions logo. Many workers will walk across country with backpack sprayers. A Progressive Solutions representative will attempt to contact affected members to inform them of crew locations and when they will be on their property. NAEC emailed members in the areas to be treated Aug. 23 and also mailed postcards that should arrive in homes and businesses the week of Aug. 30.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause; however, this regular maintenance will help provide members with safe, reliable service.
Areas scheduled to be treated include:
Members with questions or concerns may email firstname.lastname@example.org or call General Foreman Shannon Bassham at 870-895-6289 or Operations Vice President James Woody at 870-895-3221.
The Arkansas Public Service Commission's moratorium on disconnects for nonpayment will be lifted May 3, 2021. Payment arrangements for past-due balances may be made now by calling 870-895-3221 or clicking here.
