Southern California Joint Pole Committee

The Joint Pole Committee is made up of a group of member representatives of utilities, communications, and municipalities in Southern California who hold joint equity interest in utility poles. Established by telephone, electricity and railroad companies, the Committee has existed since October 10, 1906. It was formed as a result of the need to limit the number of poles in the field and to create a uniform procedure for recording ownership of poles. Each member has a vote and shares in the expenses of the Committee according to their joint pole interests. The Committee meetings are held in accordance to the SCJPC By-Laws.

The Committee employs an administrative staff whose purpose is to keep accurate records of ownership for each jointly-owned pole and keep on file a master record of each jointly-owned pole. The principal function is to calculate the established value of each transaction, involving the sale or purchase of joint pole equity interests or maintenance of those interests. The Joint Pole Committee staff prepares monthly Bills of Sale which are sent to the members to enable them to make monetary settlement of their joint enterprises.
