“Hoboken is inspecting light poles and replacing missing plates after dog is nearly electrocuted”.

Tuesday, March 01, 2011

“HOBOKEN – The near electrocution of a dog in Church Square Park has spurred Hoboken to repair light poles that are missing the plate that covers the electrical wiring.

A city spokesman announced yesterday that all the light poles in Church Square Park have been checked and caution tape has been placed around the poles that are missing the metal plate, which apparently have been stolen for scrap metal. Repairs will be performed as soon as possible, city spokesman Juan Melli said.

On Thursday, a bull mastiff named Teddy Bear was injured while urinating on the pole in the park and coming into contact with some exposed wires.

Melli said the city is working with PSE&G to check light poles throughout the city and is aiming to have new plates made with a locking system.

If a light pole is missing its plate, it can be reported to Environmental Services at (201) 420-2049.”
