Description

Copied email to Enginnering Dept, not yet answered:

Dear Sir,

First, I apologize if yours is not the right department for this issue. I would appreciate it if you would forward it to the appropriate department.

This morning I was walking my dog on College Ave between Grove and Trumbull, when the dog suddenly cried out in pain and jumped into the street. He would not go back on the sidewalk, and so we crossed the street, but he was unwilling to step on the sidewalk at all, and panted in fear all the way home.

The exact same thing happened last year on two separate occasions with my previous dog, who died this summer. At that time I suspected a voltage leak into the damp sidewalk and called the power company, but never got a response. The fact that this happened again with a different dog suggests that there is indeed a voltage leak.

The area of the sidewalk where this happened is on College Ave between Grove and Trumbull, between the 6th and 7th streetlight, on the cemetery side of the street.

I would appreciate it if you could keep me updated,
