City Council Meeting addresses concerns over lack of streetlights

With water renewal and road construction nearing completion in the Juniper and Deerwood areas, there’s still something missing.

At the regular meeting of council Monday night, Dennis Foley, a resident of the Deerwood area, addressed the lack of streetlights and the safety concerns that presents.

Foley noted that the lights had been removed over a year ago.

He asked whether those lights would be up soon, or at least by Halloween.

Lyle Safronetz, Director of Development & Technical Services for the City of Thompson said he and other city staff had met with Manitoba Hydro last week.

Safronetz relayed that Hydro would have the streetlights up and operational by early October and that a contingency plan of having light towers for Halloween is already prepared, in case of a delay.
