Where we live: Elma/Marilla/Wales


Elma officials are asking town residents for input on street lights that don’t function.

Officials have noticed dozens of lights that are supposed to illuminate town roads are out of order.

Water Department supervisor Eugene Stevenson said some of the lights have been out for more than three months.

Stevenson said he counted 14 lights out of service on a recent drive from the intersection of Seneca Street and Transit Road to Creek Road, which runs off Jamison Road. “We’re paying for them. They ought to work,” he said.

Supervisor Dennis Powers suggested that residents with inoperable street lights near their homes contact Town Hall at 652-3260 and report the pole number.
