What if I build a new deck under electric lines?
Building a deck requires a permit from the Community Development Department. In many cases if wires are too low it is because the deck has been built without getting a permit and having the plans inspected by Community Development. City of Alliance Electric crews can usually move the service wires, but it may be at some expense to the homeowner. If you have built a deck without a permit you should contact Community Development at (308) 762-5400.
