KCP&L not fixing street lights, police chief says

By Shawn Roney/ForThe Richmond News

Henrietta needs help from Kansas City Power & Light (KCP&L) – and according to Police Chief Ted Kuhlman, the company isn’t providing it.

Between 10 and 15 street lights need repair, Kuhlman estimated during an interview following Saturday morning’s Board of Aldermen meeting at Henrietta City Hall. As part of his police report during the meeting, he said he had discussed the issue a few weeks ago with a KCP&L supervisor in Henrietta. The supervisor “promised me that these street lights would be repaired the following week,” Kuhlman said.

“I’ve had that problem before down at Hardin where they just don’t want to fix them,” said Kuhlman, who also serves as Hardin’s police chief.

Other business discussed or approved Saturday included the following:
