      I've called no less than 3 times and one of my

      numbers out the wazoo and I reference then every time
      I call. The last time I called they just sympathized
      and told me to call other numbers. Shouldn't THEY be
      the ones to escalate repeated calls about streetlights
      out? This particular streetlight is in the alley
      between Florida Ave and Morse ST NE, 1200-1300 block.
      We've recently had a rash of break-ins and people
      climbing garage roofs to get into backyards and break
      into houses and garages and STILL we can't get it lit
      up again out there. This streetlight has been out for
      months. I'm at my wits end.
      fingers numb from calling 727-1000
