You can help keep our city safe(r)! Bob Clarke, the city of Davis public works director, has posted a list of non-functioning lights on the city web page: http://public-works.cityofdavis.org/Media/PublicWorks/Documents/PDF/PW/Street-Light-Outage-List.pdf.
Clarke is going to post an updated list soon, and he would be greatly helped if you would contact the Public Works Department to report a burned-out light. This evening I was coming back from the dry cleaners and saw two lights that were out that were not on the list. C3946 is right in front of the Davis Police Department. That’s not good. Then there is the one in front of a business (Davis Home Trends). Does not look so nice.
And the other evening I was in a car where the driver did not see the two pedestrians starting across the crosswalk near a shoe store in town. That’s light C4070. That one needs to be added to the list and fixed, too.
Please call in all the lights in your neighborhood that are not on the list and are now burned out, so that they can be added to the list and then fixed. It will help keep you, your family and your neighbors safe.
Remember, it is about prevention!
