The Grove lighting
I remember the gas lights we had, which were quaint and village like. They were changed out in 2009.
I think that was the beginning of the end of our quaint little village. Little by little it's been whittled away. The Grove relinquished the maintenance and "ownership" of the lighting to FPL because FPL took over all expenses on fixing, repairing and maintaining the lights. As much money as the City wastes, I still am bitter about the removal of the gas lights. They were electric, but were the image of gas lights, they were here for 40 years.
One excuse given at the time was that to repair or replace the lights and poles was expensive, this was for when people drove into them or something. In all this time, I don't think any have been driven into or knocked down.
