The Town of Atherton has gone proactive with its streetlight program. Instead of solely waiting to be contacted by residents about streetlight outages, the Town street maintenance contractor, MCE Corporation, now performs quarterly streetlight inspections. Following these inspections, a list of outages is developed and work orders are generated for the lights to be repaired.
Please be advised that the Town will be dispatching MCE to perform this quarterly streetlight inspection beginning the evening of June 25, 2014. They will be traveling throughout the streets in Atherton between 9PM and 5AM on the nights of 6/25 and 6/26.
If you should notice a white pickup truck driving slowly on your street with its rotating amber lights on during this period, chances are it is probably just MCE performing these inspections. These trucks also have a large MCE decal on the driver and passenger doors.
We anticipate the work being done by the morning of 6/27/2014. If you have any concerns, please contact Public Works at (650) 752-0570. If your concern is after hours, please contact Police dispatch at (650)752-0500.
