The company also replaced a leaning pole near the fire station on Martin Luther King Jr. Street a month ago.
Runnels said Entergy plans to soon remove or replace six or seven poles north of Cock of the Walk on the bluff.
Entergy has been continually working on eliminating clutter of poles and wires since first approached by Brown about the project several months ago.
