First Selectman Edward Haberek is not satisfied with the CL&P reason for not repairing downtown Pawcatuck street lights. He told Patch the utilities’ claim that vandalism is the issue is irrelevant, if true, because lamps that do not light pose a safety hazard.
But CL&P spokesman Mitch Gross said Saturday that while the vandalism issue with the downtown lights “continues to be a problem,” the lights will be repaired.
“We will repair them again as soon as possible,” he said. Noting that the CL&P Community Relations staff “regularly” speaks with municipal officials.
But for some, this is a bit of déjà vu. Street light issues have plagued Pawactuck businesses.
