Lights out

Dear Editor:If your street light goes out, don't count on the Edison Company fixing it in any reasonable time. On Nov. 12, I reported two lights out by my house - one at an intersection. They took all the information and told me it would probably be 5-7 days before they came out to fix it. On Nov. 14, an Edison truck pulled up to the pole by my house, looked the pole up and down, then drove to the other pole. Again, the driver (who never left his truck) looked up and down the pole at the intersection. He drove off. On Nov. 19, I called to ask when they might be out and was told they would file another report. I asked if it could be marked "second request" and was told "no." They write it up as a new report. Now it will be another 5-7 days before they come, if they do. Some service! Doris Hannon Downey
