Franklin Seeks New Light on Dim Streets

According to the New Jersey Herald, the Franklin Borough Council has been discussing areas of different streets that could use more streetlights, specifically side streets off of Main Street. There have been a couple of homeowners who have been requesting light in these specific locations.

Mayor Nick Giordano discussed how he was approached about the dimness at the intersection of Larue and Main streets.

Franklin's streetlights are installed by Jersey Central Power and Light, who also replaces burnt-out bulbs. In this case, the municipality is charged a yearly rate for electricity.

Councilman Stephen Skellenger believes they will be installing all-LED lights to save on electricity but provide a brighter light.

Giordano has suggested to traffic officer, Capt. Seamus Geddis, that officers look for dimly lit areas while patrolling the streets to prepare a report for the council on areas that will need more lighting. This could lead to JCP&L installing better bulbs in those areas.
