How Dark Lehigh Has Become In The Last Five Years
By Don Semple
Has anyone else noticed how dark Lehigh has become in the last five years? There are more streetlights out than ever before. And Irma didn’t help. WE PAY FOR THEM IF THEY ARE FUNCTIONAL OR NOT!!! Notice one out? Send a note to LCEC with the location. Best is to get the number off the pole. The light number should have alphabetic characters before and/or after it (Example: S9999XX). The transformer number should have a “T” in front of it (Example: T9999) PITA, yes. But with the warnings about traveling thieves and break-ins, everyone should want to “Light up Lehigh”. That is my campaign. I’ve reported 37 in the last year and are all fixed. Everyone do your part. Very EZ to do online: https://www.lcec.net/my-home/products-and-services/security-lighting/report-streetlight-outage or call them 800-599-2356. With kids going to school in the dark, poor drivers and out of town snowbirds arriving in flocks, let’s “Light up Lehigh”. We’re paying for it – check your bill for the added franchise fee, They are raking in millions – let’s let put ‘em to work to earn it.
