Broken streetlights can be tricky in Alamo

Original post made on Mar 29, 2008

It's tough to get broken streetlights fixed in Alamo, agree residents and officials. Two out of five broken streetlights on Stone Valley Road near the intersection of High Eagle Drive were just fixed - after more than a year of being out.

Streetlights aren't the only things broken in Alamo...

Imagine! They want us to crawl up a light post in the middle of the night to read a serial number. I'll bet our neighbors in Danville are chuckling up their sleeves.

This problem - and so many others - would be corrected in the incorporated Town of Alamo. Until then, jurisdictions will just point the finger at each other.

Alamo Ron, welcome back!

Your oxymoron is claiming a Town of Alamo would immediately fix street lights when the incorporation proponents have repeatedly opposed street lighting within the AIM boundaries. I could imagine street light repair being done with a chain saw at ground level. What do you think?

Smile, Ron! Then consider that the majority of neighbors in the Diablo Vista (Alamo) region want underground utilities, street lighting, municipal Wifi, and pathways/walkways. Could you imagine your Town of Alamo ever considering such services?

They are more likely to install horse troughs and a stage coach stop, of course, unlighted.

Funny stuff!

Dear Alamo neighbors,

I'm confused! Just how did the street lights get broken in the first place. Keith noted that street lights don't exist in Alamo California because the local leaders don't want them in their community. Were they broken on purpose?

As I look at the map of Alamo and the location of these street lights, they don't seem capable of lighting your community or even much of the surrounding area. Why are they there?

If whoever is suppose to fix them does fix them, will they just be broken again?

It is curious,

Del, Alamo TN
