My rant yesterdayÂ regarding constantly-lit holiday lights at the Civic Center prompted a response from Pakou Ly in defense of the city.
Apparently, there’s a sensible explanation, and this is a temporary situation.
Ly wrote:Â “The lights are on in the Civic Center, First Street and Superior Street in an effort to trouble shoot circuitry leading to the lights. We have electricians in all of these areas correcting power supply to the newly acquired decorations and the conversion to LED in an effort to reduce power consumption. All decorative lighting is fed from the street light circuits. The only way we know how to verify circuit conductivity is by having theÂ lights on.”
There you go.
