The Commissioner of Public Works has decided to illuminate streetlights earlier than 6 a.m. to accommodate early morning walkers and runners.
It was determined that residents who are getting up in the morning and working out need the street lamps to be illuminated for safety reasons.
“This actually has taken place in Magoun and Ball Squares for people in that area,” said Ward 5 Alderman O’Donovan.
“Of course, it will catch up when we move the clocks back in March,” O’Donovan added. But, right now, it is “a little bit dark,” he noted.
