City Councillors cracking down on street light outages

2013-07-02 - N Reed Street, Columbia, KY - Photo By Ed Waggener. Councillors Charles Grimsley and Dr. Ronald P. Rogers are cracking down on burned out street lights. Over the past month, they rode the streets in the evening and found that 31 of the city's street lights were doing their jobs. The surveillance takes 6 hours Councillor Grimsley said; or 12 man hours when a two person team does the job. They're calling on Citizens to help with the task, as well as City Gas, Police, Sanitation Department members, staff at City Hall, and other Council Members. Bad street lights should be reported, with the Number on the Pole (Above, B-3, Reed Street) along with the street location. Call City Hall at 270-384-2501; or Mr. Grimsley at 270-384-5658; or Dr. Rogers, or any Council Member. The City is paying for the same service whether the lights are working or not, Councillor Grimsley says.
