Another streetlight saved.
Living in the smallest municipality in the State of New Jersey you tend to get involved in day to day issues of the town. Protecting the history and facade of this waterfront community took precedence today.
Fifteen years ago, a man driving through our town noticed the old fashion street lights were being replaced with modern ones. Not liking this nod to the future he contacted city officials and helped initiate a program to replace the lights with a similar look. This gentleman now lives in St. Louis and again was visiting the area and saw a repeat of 1995. This stranger took action again to save the quaint look of Corbin City. I had the honor today of counting all lights. My recap- 44 lights total, of which 17 have been replaced, and 2 burnt out bulbs. Lets preserve the past and remember that one person can make a difference.
