    Thanks for the article. In Georgia, the electric company provides security light polls free of charge. Maybe that’s an option. Good luck keeping the Little League contract and adding improvements such as swings, benches, etc. which Rex Lamb, Sr. would have wanted for the neighborhood and community.
