City of East Point, Ga., Selects McLean Engineering for GIS Mapping and Pole Attachment Inventory


The City of East Point, Ga., recently selected McLean Engineering Company to provide an inventory of East Point Power’s joint use pole attachments and electric distribution assets.

As part of its joint use and pole attachment agreements, East Point Power is due to conduct a pole attachment count and joint use inventory on its system. The City of East Point selected McLean Engineering to provide this count in an effort to collect updated information on a GIS basis, improve relationships with its attachers, and clean up late transfers.  

McLean Engineering will also provide a GIS asset inventory for its electric distribution system.  McLean takes a low-cost and flexible approach to GIS to allow for efficient control of East Point’s distribution assets and to make it easy to afford the cost of keeping maps up-to-date – the most essential function of any map.

McLean works with many municipalities, cooperatives and state trade organizations to navigate through joint-use concerns by providing expertise in all areas related to joint-use and pole attachment matters.
