KENSINGTON — Kensington Mayor Rowan Caseley wants Maritime Electric to fix streetlights in the town or the town will stop paying for electricity running to them.

Coun. Mack MacLean raised the issue at the recent council meeting.

Some lights, it was noted, have been out for months, even years.

Town manager Geoff Baker said Maritime Electric has been asked, on numerous occasions, to fix the lights that are out, with only one here and there repaired.

Caseley suggested that the town withhold payment for electricity running to the lights that are out until all lights were repaired.

He indicated he would write a strongly worded letter to the company to ensure that the lights are repaired in a timely fashion.

    Good idea they can't even keep the power grid on PEI working in nice weather. The fact they don't repair street lights seems par for the course. The sooner the Government takes over this company the better it will be and lower rates plus someone will be answerable for power outages.

    Withhold payment to Maritime Electric. Yeah, that's always a good move... if you like being in the dark!
