Street lights Out

Is there a message being sent to the general public when street lights are intentionally disabled? I already have an SR# from 311, but I wonder about the motive for disabling street lights that are working fine.

  • It seems as though the street lights in Maple Park have been off more lately than they have been on and it is very dark. We have a pretty good neighborhood however I am always concerned that visitors from elsewhere might find our dark, unlit streets very appealing for the wrong reasons. If you don’t mind me asking, how did you find out that it is intentional?

  • Also, thank you Nirrehs for making our community aware of this-I am going to call 311 the next time the lights are out too. What is an SR#??? A report number they give you when you call?

Psalm 112 Over 112th Str. For The Fear Of Evil To Meet Defeat!

As a Senior-Veteran,I must note-by my authority,entrusted by The LORD,my horn of hope,
I will see the wild wicked that hang around in front of stores,calling ,"Old School" out,cause he wears a medal with "G" wings on with none of their doubts!
Oh,they will melt away & their territorial mind-sets will perish like Psalm 112:10 does say!
Everlasting rememberance to the righteous!
