Blinking street light fix still on 'to do' list

There have been two big issues that are the primary calls coming into the Danbury Public Works Department over the last few months.  One is the tree clearing on I-84, the other is the flickering street lamps.  Many of the lights are on the highway, but some issues have been reported on City Streets, including White Street and Patriot Drive.  Motorists have said it is distracting for them.  Public Works Director Antonio Iadarola told the City Council a few months ago that it looks like Uncle Sam is at a disco.  He believes it's a vendor issue, and  thinks the controller that got put into those lights don't match the bulb.  Iadarola says it appears the LED lamps don't work well with the controllers.  The ones on City Streets and along the highway were all replaced around the same time.  He has spoken with Eversource several times, only to be told its on the list.  Asked if the City can do anything, Iadarola says they have cut the feeders to stop them from blinking.
