Yarmouth street light deadline approache

In September, the Town of Yarmouth announced that they would be shutting off unnecessary street lights in town. Street lights considered necessary are those located at intersections, sites deemed potentially hazardous by public safety officials or where an incline or a decline in a road may cause a safety hazard.

A list of lights to be shut off is available on the town's website here.  Any citizen of Yarmouth who wishes to dispute a particular turn off may fill out and submit an appeal prior to October 24, 2009.

The town will begin turning off lights that do not meet safety standards or have not been successfully appealed on November 2, 2009.
