After two years of phone calls and pleading my case to the county, we finally got a street light installed by our house! Actually, they put 2 on our street!!
Here is some photographic evidence of the installation. The girls had a great time watching the whole process, from the guy with the blow torch thawing the ground to the pressure washer guy spraying off his crew. A good time was had by all!
I probably should have been more specific in my request, however. We now have two pristine street lights, but no glass and/or light bulbs. (We had the cherry picker trucker here to put the top on the pole, why he didn't finish the job, I can't explain.)
Maybe that's a job for some other neighborhood crusader!
