New street lamp in East Lake.
EAST LAKE -- Neighbors on Cottage Grove Ave in East Lake are seeing more clearly now, after Commuter Dude inspired the City of Atlanta and Georgia Power to resolve a street light situation.
Homes in the two thousand block found themselves in the dark because of the light's placement beneath an extremely leafy tree. A recent car break in alerted residents to the problem and Ron McGhee set out to get it fixed.
After dealing with both the City and Georgia Power for several months and getting nowhere, Ron decided to reach out to 11Alive for help. Once Commuter Dude got in touch with the office of the City arborist, things started to happen.
