ETPA Forum Question - Replacement of Traffic Poles


What does your city do when a traffic pole is taken out due to a car accident and is damaged beyond repair?  Obviously when that happens you don't want that intersection to be without traffic signals for too long.  So does your city have poles onsite and then use city employees to install those poles?  Or do you have a hired contractor that stores and provides the pole and installs it for you?  

Or does your city purchase and store the poles and then have a contractor install the pole after a situation like this?  And if this is your option, how can you be sure the contractor is paying the sales and use tax on that pole?
