City must fix light on 200th St.

The street light in front of my home on 200th Street has been out since February. I called 311 at the time prior to my departure for the winter and was told that it had already been reported.

When I returned May 16, the light was still out. Another call to 311 directed me to call Con Ed with a work order number I had been provided as well as something called a stop tag number.

I have made several more attempts to have this safety hazard corrected, the latest being June 14.

It is like reinventing the wheel each time, with a courteous voice on the other end asking the same details regarding the location of the light, the cross streets, etc.

This may not be the proper forum in reaching you to help my neighbors and myself in getting the light restored, but short of contacting City Councilman Paul Vallone (D-Bayside) or state Assemblyman Ed Braunstein (D-Bayside), I am reaching out to you for suggestions on how to get this issue resolved.

It is taking surrealistically long for a resolution to come to pass.
