Electrician to inspect faulty carpark lights tomorrow

THE PROBLEM with the lighting in the library behind the Grafton Library should be uncovered tomorrow.

Clarence Valley Council has ordered an electrician to find out why only three of the 14 lights in the carpark have been working in recent weeks.

Carpark users, who are mainly workers and owners of nearby businesses, say they fear for their safety when they return to their cars in the dark.

There have been issues of anti-social behaviour around the new library and some carpark users say there are still people roaming about after dark.

The council decision to restrict parking to two hours in the space under the library building in recent weeks forced more people to use the unlit areas of the area.

The council original feared the lights had been vandalised, but later said it appeared the problem was electrical.
