Bowling Green is working with insurance adjusters on tallying the damage sustained in a July 7 storm that snapped 15 electric transmission poles on Dunbridge Road.
Director of Utilities Brian O'Connell told city council Monday night that the city's policy includes a $100,000 deductible. "We don't have a total yet," he said but indicated the loss would exceed the deductible.
He said the repair work required had kept city electric crews from getting back to complete electric relocations at Parkview and North Main to complete that project.
Council also:
•    Gave first reading to an ordinance intended to deal with tree problems on private property.
•    Approved ordinances to purchase LED retrofit kits to upgrade downtown street lighting, purchase utility inventory requirements and underground and overhead line insurance.
•    Approved interim zoning of R-2, single-family residential for property at 16381 Brim Road and changes to the zoning code regarding utility data required on site plans.
