I’ve been remiss and want to belatedly express my gratitude to all my Village Green Front Porch neighbors who kindly contacted Burlington Electric.  The street lamp at the end of Van Patten Parkway and Brook Drive, which was knocked down last winter, was replaced!

Nothing like a load of phone calls from one neighborhood to get a municipality or local utility to tune in and fix the problem.
