Past time to light our streets

By
From page A6 | January 29, 2014 |

So, there I was minding my own business at a campaign kickoff event for Sheila Allen in that nice park where the Farmers Market is and I run into Councilman Lucas Frerichs. And we start talking about street lights and whether there are still a lot of lights out.

Soon we slip into western New York dialect (making sure nobody with tender ears can overhear us) and start naming off the lights that are out. So, I am thinking, “Holy Batman, is my work not done, now that the city has selected a vendor for replacing most of the Davis street lights?”

So, I went out tonight to see if there are more than a few out. Here is what I found: light out at Black Bear Diner, at the Odd Fellows building, Wiscome Funeral Home, Crepeville, three lights by City Hall including C2178, one by Taste of Thai, one by Sole Desire, the one in front of Pinkadot, one across from Union Bank, one in front of Paesanos, two lights on the C Street side of Davis Community Church as well as one across the street at the park, the light closest to YoloBerry Yogurt, and the one in front of the Chen Building, both street lights in front of Mansion Square, the light across from Coral Bay Family Dentistry outside the AT&T building, C3946 outside the Davis police station is still out (chief?), three lights are out near Get Fit Davis, a set of lights near Big O Tires, EZ Smog and University Import Automotive.

So, I am wondering: 1. Do insurance companies get annoyed if your building or business is vandalized if the light out front is burned out? 2. Is there a business association around here that might be helpful in making sure business owners get the city services they are paying for … like street lights that work? The street light repair list went up on the city web page (see “Public Works”). Is your light on it?

Bottom line: Thank you, Mr. Frerichs for making me curious enough to check out the situation again! In public health/safety, it is all about prevention!
