VIDEO: Committeeman Meir Lichtenstien this evening expressed his frustration with the Township’s electric company, JCP&L, as the company fails to respond to the Township’s requests in a timely fashion. Lichtenstien, the liaison to the company, says they have requested many times that the company repair broken lights and install lights where needed, but the company would not respond.
“The fact that we ask for street lights in the town, and it can take up to a year – a year and a half to get them – and we’re paying for it – is uncalled for”, Lichtenstien said. “And finally when we get it after a year, we’re thankful that they allow us to pay them for their street lights”.
The Committeeman also stressed that with Winter coming, the dark streets prove to be more dangerous to pedestrians walking after 5-6:00PM.
In light of the situation, Lichtenstien asked that the Mayor send the company a letter and also withhold payment from the company until the company comes down to speak with them, and action is taken.
The Mayor agreed to the motion. TLS.
