MARIETTA – Marietta Power and Water, the City of Marietta’s utility company, has sent some of its highly trained and dedicated Power employees to our neighbors in Albany, Georgia to help the local utility companies restore power to citizens in the aftermath of the tragic storms this past weekend.

The crew arrived in Albany on Monday afternoon to help with the storm restoration process.  The crew consisted of a six man Line crew and a two man Forestry crew for a total of 8 employees: Alan Matthews (Line Foreperson), Jason Hedden, Aaron Parrott, Jason Ravan, Scottie Inskeep, Lawson Tibbitts, Dan Yarger (Forestry Foreperson), and Edward Little.  Additionally, the City of Marietta dedicated three bucket trucks and one digger derrick truck to help Albany Utilities restore power to its citizens. 

“As fellow Georgians, we were saddened and heartbroken to see the destruction and loss of life our neighbors in Albany witnessed in the aftermath of the catastrophic storms last weekend,” said Mayor Steve Tumlin.  “Because we are fortunate enough to not only have our own utility company, but also have some of the most highly trained and qualified employees in the state, we were honored to send an eight-person team down to Albany on Monday.  Our crews will stay in Albany until the job is done and I want to thank our employees who have left their families at home while they help Georgians in their time of need.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of this storm.”
