Xcel Energy : Greeley Tribune, Colo., Action Line column

11/29/2015 | 10:47am US/Eastern

Nov. 28--QUESTION -- I live at the Ridge at Prairie View in Evans. About two years ago, the light pole at our entrance got knocked down. It lay there for months before it got replaced about nine months ago.

It's been up this whole time, but the light never comes on. I almost hit a cyclist who was traveling east the other night because I couldn't see him until he was right next to me.

When I called the city of Evans about the light pole, they said it was Xcel Energy's responsibility. When I called Xcel, they said it was Evans'. What's going on?

ANSWER -- You know, I thought I would get a much clearer answer. I didn't.

Evans spokeswoman Kristen Williams said Evans does own the light poles, but a franchise agreement between the city and Xcel Energy -- where Evans gets its power -- says the energy company is in charge of all maintenance.

Xcel spokesman Gabriel Romero said it varies from case to case who is responsible to fix these damaged poles.

He also said Xcel has no way to know if a light goes out, so it has to be reported. He said this light probably hadn't been reported, but it sounds like you notified them.

Q -- Colorado requires front and back license plates, but I don't have a front license plate holder. If I don't get one, can the police give me a ticket?

A -- Yeah, you can get a ticket.

Sgt. Joe Tymkowych with the Greeley Police Department said all cars registered for Colorado must have two plates.

There are some exceptions, though. Motorcycles, trailers, mobile machinery or anything being pulled by another vehicle don't need front plates.

If you have a question for Action Line, send it to Catherine Sweeney, csweeney@greeleytribune.com, or call (970) 392-5632.
