Subj.: Streetlights in non-working condition

Dear Sir/ Madam,

We, the undersigned, are the residents of the Ward no. ___ under your municipality. We would like to draw your kind attention to the poor maintenance of the streetlights in our locality. There are a few streetlights existing in our locality. Most of which are either not working or are in very poor condition providing dim light, which is of little to no use for the inhabitants of the said Ward.

You would appreciate how the non-working state of streetlights failing to eradicate darkness at night on the roads and areas are clearing the paths for muggers to be proactive in public places at night. Females and children are especially afraid to walk on the street at night. It is also leading to motor accidents, mainly at vulnerable roads.

The local inhabitants have been lodging complaints with the local authority for the repair or replacement of the streetlights, which are in non-working condition. However, to our dismay, no action whatsoever has been taken on this matter so far.

Therefore, we have no choice but to approach your goodself seeking your help and attention in this matter on an urgent basis. Kindly instruct the appropriate authority to take immediate action on the repairs and replacement of the damaged streetlights in our Ward no. ___.
