Fixing Keizer one light at a time

Facebook Twitter Email

Portland General Electric was all over two burned-out streetlights reported to us last week at Keizertimes.com via our See Click Fix feature.

Our neighbors on Dee Court and on Northtree Drive NE can now better see their street – and criminals have one less dark place to operate – thanks to light repairs in the past week, both performed by Portland General Electric.

A shout-out to Jenniffer Warner in the City of Keizer’s Public Works Department for her help in determining which agency was responsible.

Meanwhile, high shrubs at Rivercrest Drive N. and Dennis Lane N. have been reported to us by several residents. We’ve sent it on to the City of Keizer’s Codes Enforcement division, who will look into it. You may recall budget cuts forced the city to lay off its lone full-time codes enforcement officer, so this could take a little time. However, city staff plan to look at the issue and see if the shrubs do not fit city regulations.

You can point out problem areas throughout Salem-Keizer at Keizertimes.com. Additional issues reported to us include:

• Burned-out street light at 5057 Briarwood Circle N.

• A bumpy manhole in front of Shari’s on River Road in Keizer.

• Potholes on Wallace Road NW in west Salem.

• Shrubbery-obstructed intersection at the Jiffy Lube entrance near Walmart on Lancaster Drive NE.

• A not-so-well-placed picnic table at Wallace House Park the complainant says has become a homeless haven.
