Clear Spring must make streetlight repairs

February 13, 2008|By HEATHER KEELS

CLEAR SPRING -- Allegheny Power on Tuesday said the Town of Clear Spring has to repair the foundation of a streetlight at the intersection of Martin and Cumberland streets before a light and pole there can be replaced.

Todd Meyers, an Allegheny Power spokesman, said the company ordered a light and a pole to replace the ones that were struck by a vehicle in December, but town officials first have to hire a contractor to lay the proper foundation.

Allegheny Power will work with town officials to ensure both parties are aware of their respective responsibilities, Meyers said.

On Monday, some members of the Clear Spring Town Council said Allegheny Power was taking too long to fix the problem. In addition, the council said Allegheny Power hadn't fixed another streetlight on Mill Street.

Meyers said the light on Mill Street would be repaired as soon as the manufacturer delivers a glass globe to cover the light.
