Street Lights

Ross Cable and Dick Pickup, have mapped, painted, and numbered seven hundred & thirty-two – let’s say that again: 732!! – street posts and plaza lights in Bucerias! This was a very time consuming effort, thank you both.

Using maps obtained from the government and Google, the team located the names of every street in the community that had been recorded. Locating the streets themselves was the real challenge. Having received permission from CFE and the municipality, they spent six weeks painting a patch of white paint on each post and filling in with a green number. A gallon of white paint and 1 quart of green later, Dick and his wife, Mary Carmen, scouted the streets for three nights, locating those fixtures not working and finally reported those one hundred forty-one (141) non working lights to the Public Works Department.  That’s just under 20% of lights not working.     The following morning a crew were despatched at 10 o’clock to start the repairs.

Thanks to the sterling efforts of Ross, Dick, and Mary Carmen, future malfunctions –  including lights that remain on all day  can be easily  reported by sending the street name and post number by email to: [email protected]  Unfortunately the actual repair situation can be a bit complicated…
