JPS to Fix 2,000 Streetlights for November – Repairs to follow publicized schedule
JPS is reporting that having exceeded its October target for streetlight repairs (2,544 street lamps fixed, surpassing the target of 2,000), the Company is scheduled to fix another 2,000 streetlights by the end of November.
