For anybody attending the theft prevention seminar being held on April 5 @ 7:00 p.m. at St. Francis Borgia, 8033 W. Addison, can someone please raise the topic of alley lights are out and why is Alderman Sposato's office saying that this situation is out of their hands and that ComEd has a 6 month waiting list to fix these? Unfortunately, I cannot attend, but, really wish I could. I am absolutely certain that one of their pieces of advice is to keep your porch light on and encourage neighbors to do the same. I do that without fail. But, what good does it do when your front is on, but, the alley is pitch black. I've been calling weekly to Sposato's office and they're clearly getting perturbed by my calls, but, I feel safer with those lights on plain and simple. I have only one that's been out since December. There's an entire stretch of alley between Long and Lindner/Grace and Berniece (6/7 lights) since about the same time. I get the whole low priority thing, but, 6 months. Unacceptable. Thanks to anyone who remembers this and asks.
