Weyburn residents are looking for answers after noticing that the streetlights along Railway Avenue have been blinking.

BIG 106's Dara Currie caught up with Jordan Jackle of SaskPower to find out more on the ongoing issue:

Jackle noted that there are any number of reasons the cable fault could have an issue ranging from the cold weather to the age of the lines.

SaskPower is currently working on a plan to get the line fixed, however, the weather isn't helping anything.

"You do have to dig up a part of it and this time of year the ground out there is pretty hard," noted Jackle.

Jackle also noted that streetlight's are under SaskPower's purview and anyone who notices streetlight issues have a number of avenues to inform SaskPower.

"The best way to report a streetlight issue is by using our streetlight reporting tool either on our website, SaskPower.com, or you can also access that through the SaskPower app. Once you do that, you get a verification and you will be updated when that streetlight is fixed and you actually get a map that spots the exact streetlight that you are seeing an issue with."

To close, he noted that SaskPower is continuing to work on a plan to get the lights fixed. In the meantime, Weyburn Residents can simply enjoy the show.
