Block 21 Ward II Electrical Infrastructure

This petition had 44 supporters

In the last two months alone, our block has had 5 power outages. Three of these outages occurred during peaceful weather conditions. These outages have resulted in loss of food and property damage.

Over the past few years the transformer located behind the residence at 4518 Tomahawk Rd. has been the cause of most of these outages. On any given day the transformer literally sends bluish green electrical arcs down the main line as well as the line that leads to the house located at the above address. To make matters worse, there have been two utility lines lying on the ground for months that are connected below the transformer. Every time the transformer causes arcing electricity, it is able to reach the ground via these lines. 

KCPL has been notified of this problem multiple times and nothing has been done to address it. These occurrences are not only a nuisance, they are a real danger to the residents of this block.

The electrical infrastructure on this block desperately needs to be repaired and upgraded.

I encourage each resident to explain how these outages have affected them, both personally and financially.
