Streetlight Request at 255–289 South St, Brookline

Closed about 5 years ago via iPhone Iphone_tiny


Is this really a safe way and code compliant way to install a telephone pole - see piece of wood wrapped with orange tape at the bottom? Seems like a huge load resting on a piece of wood that is simply sitting on the sidewalk and not buried in the ground. It has been this way for months or years, ie it is not temporary. Wouldn't take much for the pole and wires to come down and potentially hurt someone, not to mention the service interruption.
