Light the town before Picnic Day

By
From page A6 | April 16, 2013 |

Last Tuesday I testified during “public comment” at the Davis City Council about the ongoing problem of burned-out street lights. The topic was on the council agenda.

As Lamar Heystek, former City Council member, said, when first encouraging me to address the council on this issue…. “Our town is not well lighted when all of the lights are lit, let alone when so many are burned out.”

At Tuesday’s meeting I observed that our town looks kind of ticky-tacky at night … there are more than a dozen burned-out lights on Russell Boulevard, a half-dozen in the City Hall parking lot and more in lots throughout the city. Picnic Day is coming up and Davis looks kind of sad.

I recommend that everybody check the lights near their home or business and report it to the city Public Works Department or city manager. For me, this is personal because “the light that should never go out” is burned out at the end of my driveway (#1144).

You can go to this location on the city website (there used to be a special link for city light problems, but I guess they got rid of that): http://cityofdavis.org/report-a-problem to report a light out. Remember to tell them the pole number and location.

Please help keep Davis attractive and safe when thousands of folks visit our town for Picnic Day! Light the lights!
