Letters: Turn the lights on

Burnt out streetlights concern resident on Ludlow Road

How and to whom does one report a burnt out streetlight in Sooke?

I live on Ludlow Road and the streetlight at the corner of Sooke and Ludlow has been burnt out for months.

I have called the District of Sooke in beginning of  August and again in September to report it.  As of this evening it is still burnt out (Sept 30).

I explained to the clerk that there are two  well used bus stops right there, to and from Victoria, a fire hydrant and also a large open ditch. It is a dark, fairly isolated area as the houses on Sooke Road are back from the road and the house closest has a huge hedge between it and the road.

I don’t understand the lack of concern or ability to change a light bulb.   Surely there must be a correct procedure  or place to report it so that it will get fixed in a reasonable manner before something serious happens.

I would appreciate finding out the correct procedure.
