Power pole in new park will be fenced

The Havre City Council will allow NorthWestern Energy to put a power pole in a planned skateboard park as long as a fence is erected around the pole.
NorthWestern offered to erect the fence at a meeting earlier Tuesday of the council's Streets and Sidewalks Committee. The committee has been debating whether to allow the pole, which would use metal tension wires for support, inside the park. The park will be on the northeast undeveloped section of Patterson Park and by the water tower off Ninth Street.
Committee members had worried that the guy wires might be dangerous to skateboarders.
