street-light-300x200Residents in our 540 Building have been asking about the street light that covers the North parking lot and path to the 540 Building.  The light has been extinguished for some time.

The light is now ON!  Thanks to Bill Crews (a 550 Resident and FPL employee) who identified and assisted in the illumination.
