We’ve got another leaner.

This angled utility pole was spotted on West Front Street, just outside Trinity Church.

It’s not as crooked as the one on Broad Street, right, that needed to be fixed twice. It appears to be holding up OK.

“A lot of times, just due to age, they’ll lean a little bit,” said Jim Markey, a regional manager for JCP&L.

Or they can lean a little more than a little bit, like the one on West Front. Markey said he wasn’t aware of the pole’s position, but will send somebody out to check on it and, if needed, have it fixed.
