Borough has an online solution to reporting problems with street lightsJun 15th, 2010 | By Jeff McCloud | Category: Front Page, News
From Chronicling Elizabethtown –
If you live in Elizabethtown, you now now have an easy and convenient way to report problems with streetlights online.
By simply following the link, type in the grid number, which is the number on the two metal labels on every utility pole. If you don’t know the number, simply click on the Unknown Grid Number button, which will take you to a screen where you can type in Elizabethtown’s ZIP code (17022).
This brings you to a screen where you can type in your address. A Google map of the area appears with icons showing the locations of the streetlights in that area of town. You just click on the light that has an issue and follow the on-screen menus to report it.
I recently reported a problem with a light outside my house. I found the system to work very easily. If you’re at all familiar with using online tools, it will be a cinch for you.
