Several folks have contacted us about lights being out on Hanover Street for extended periods of time. On a recent night, we counted five of the acorn lights out from along Hanover from Cross to Commercial streets. Business owners have contacted the city repeatedly in hopes the lights would be fixed.
At a recent North End Chamber of Commerce meeting, Public Works said they would be cutting decorative lights that connected to their system due to overload problems. However, the acorn light outages do not appear to be related to holiday lights.
To report a street light outage, contact the Mayor’s 24 hour hotline at 617-635-4500 or file an online form at http://www.cityofboston.gov/mayor/24/.
