Keeping our streetlights on
Our electric company, Ameren Missouri, leases our street lights to us.
Everyone wants to keep our neighborhood's streetlights in working order
but we need your help to make this happen. It is the responsibility of
the homeowner or homeowners that are close to the lights make Ameren
aware of the problem, whether it be a downed pole or a non-functioning light.
If a homeowner is aware of other problems with the lighting please call
Ameren and please report it to a trustee with the date that this was
reported. (Ameren may insist that there is a number on the pole that
you must provide them when reporting outages but there aren't any.) Please
give the address or addresses closest to the pole. Don't forget that after
the problem is fixed, you should notify a trustee once more so that we may
get reimbursed for the time the light(s) are non functioning.
Ameren will cut back any tree limbs that are covering the poles or wires.
If you know of any, please call them and request that they do this.
Some of you may have noticed that some of the street lights are now brighter
after having been replaced. These new lights use light emitting diode (LED)
technology, and they save power as well as being brighter. Ameren will likely
not replace the older technology bulbs merely on request, but will probably
replace them as the older lights fail.
