Clearwater residents asked to report street light problems

CLEARWATER

Residents asked to report street light problems

The city urges residents to report malfunctioning street lights anywhere they see them throughout the city. First, determine the exact location of the light — either with specific directions or the identification number on the light pole. Then report it by calling (800) 228-8485 and pressing 3 from the voice menu. Or visit progress-energy.com/streetlightrepair and fill out the outage form. Then provide your personal contact information in case the technician needs help finding the light. Progress Energy has up to 60 days to repair lights but usually does so more quickly, according to the city.

Homeless kitchen needs these items

The Homeless Emergency Project's dining hall needs canned green beans, carrots, assorted beans (black, chickpeas, butter, baked, etc.), pasta sauce, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes and tuna as well as nonperishable cereal, salad dressing, condiments, granola bars, pretzels, crackers, pudding cups and apple sauce cups. For information, contact Jackie or Joe at (727) 442-9041, ext. 121, or email jackiem@ethep.org. The nonprofit provides homeless and low-income people with housing, food, clothing and support services to help obtain self-sufficiency and improved quality of life.
