From the Times Newsweekly:
Asked by Board 5 member Cathy Sumsky if and when replica antique streetlamps would be installed along Metropolitan Avenue in Middle Village- which was to be included as part of the renovation of the avenue's streetscape- Como replied that the city had purchased the new lights but was unable to install them. He noted the fixtures weren't compatible with the wiring currently in place on the roadway.
DUH, DUH, DUH!!!! Don't you love how city agencies waste our money and then the city raises taxes to cover for their incompetence?
