Have you ever noticed a street light in your neighborhood that never seems to turn off? A resident recently asked about a light burning 24/7 in the Buchner Park neighborhood.
Who is checking up on these lights and what's it costing for the ones that are on night and day?
City of Waukesha Project Engineer Michael Grulke said if a resident sees a street light continuously burning it could be that the optic eye, a device that automatically will turn the light off, has malfunctioned.
Grulke said the city's Department of Public Works appreciates citizens who notice and report these situations. He said oftentimes residents are the most informed about these situations.
When a problem is reported, a crew is dispatched to the site to fix the malfunctioning light or lights.
To report a concern about a streetlight, or any other concern, Grulke said you can mail concerns to:
City of Waukesha
Engineering Division – Traffic
130 Delafield St.
Waukesha, WI 53188
Or you can call, (262) 524 -3590.
