8 FOCUS - JANUARY 2018 Mailbox Letters to the editor continued from page 2 Street Lights Out!!! Dear Editor Did you know? The only way streetlights get repaired is for the citizens to call the Township office??? My councillor said she would see about putting a notification in the local papers but nothing has shown up. On my last trip through Port Perry on 7A Westbound, I counted over 15 lights out between the causeway and Walmart (4 on the north side as you enter town from the causeway in front of the Independent). I see them out, stuck on all day or going on and off through the night here in Cartwright, and try to report it but I can only do so much, as nobody else seems to call in. Pete Barber, Blackstock P.S. I joined the “procrastinators” club last year, we haven’t had a meeting yet!!!!!!!!! Please send us your letters, maximum of 250 words.
