Normally, assuming you mean a full size utility pole, the utility does that for about $1200-2500 range (including the wiring hookup and transformer), though occasionally more - especially if in bedrock. Sometimes free if this is a new service, as they expect to recover the cost in utility charges over the years.

Otherwise, if they won't do it, you need a line electrical company - a commercial outdoor electrical contractor who normally do street lighting work, industrial on-site overhead wiring and contract electrical work for electric utilities. Not the type of company likely to list on Angies List, though a few AL ones will do that type of work maybe - and AL listed ones would certainly be able to give you names of companies who do so.

Be sure to coordinate, if your contractor is supposed to be doing wiring too, to get clarification of exactly what he needs to do and what the utility is doing, and who notifies them that the service is ready to hook up.

If you mean just putting up a temporary construction meter pole (which in different areas is typically a 4x4 or 6x6 about 8-10 feet tall (above-ground), some utilities requires two 4x4's with a half sheet of plywood between to mount the meter box. Most electrical contractors can put poles in the ground for that (or get a sub to do it) as part of an electrical hookup job - as will some Handymen, and certainly Fencing contractors.
