TUTALL S, Sup t . <br />Councilman Korpal seconded the motion. <br />February 4, 1947. <br />As there are no traffic signals at Lincolnway 'Fest and Walnut Street I assume the above is in reference <br />to a street light, iron pole, undergrou -id service, which was but by an automobile on January 12th, and destroye <br />On the word of the Indiana & Michigan- Electric Company, that they have beor unable to secure an iron pole <br />and fixtures to replace this service, I issued an order to them on January 17th, to set a wood pole at the <br />alley on the north side of Lincoln Slay West, and extend their aerial wires to this pole, and mount thereon <br />a. mast arm fixture, in order to restore light'to this location. <br />Talking with Mr. Diedrich, of the I. &.11. Co. this morning, he stated that the severe weather conditions, <br />plus the trouble incident'tto the recent sleet storm which has kept both day and night crews busy, has delayed <br />restoration of. this light, but that it would be done as quickly as possible. At any rate they have the order <br />and, ,i t is up to them. <br />Respectfully submitted, <br />WM F. (´┐ŻUALLS, Supt.. <br />Councilman McCarthy made a motion that the report be placed or. file. Councilman Niezgodski seconded the <br />motion. 11otion carried. <br />
