East Point Power Power Department, a utility located in East Point, Ga., which includes line operation, tree trimming, and systems control, recently received approval from the City Council to lease eight trucks over the next five years. 

According to a city report, the lease includes one 40-foot bucket trucks, two 47-foot derrick trucks, and five 55-foot bucket trucks.
