Resident in the dark over city’s lack of action

Burned out light situation an accident waiting to happen

I wonder how long we must wait before city workers replace the burnt-out bulb in the lamp standard at the entrance to Chown Place on Harriet Road? Despite repeated requests over two months, no action has been taken and this area remains in a dark and dangerous state.

This is particularly disturbing since many of the elderly residents at Chown Place have difficulty walking. I have already observed one elderly gentleman stumble on one of the darkened curbs. Must we wait until someone falls and breaks a hip or leg before a new bulb is finally put in?
