HARRISBURG - A Harrisburg gentleman's club is paying to repair streetlights in a high-crime neighborhood in hopes of encouraging other businesses to keep the cash-strapped city's residents safe.
Savannah's manager Jonas Hair says broken streetlights are a problem for any business, even ones like his that keep their own security staff. So the club has offered to foot the $1,320 bill to fix a light outside the South Harrisburg establishment and five more in the crime-ridden Allison Hill neighborhood.
The Patriot News reports a local historic association is also raising money for streetlight repair after paying for new lighting on a Susquehanna River foot bridge.
Harrisburg spokesman Robert Philbin says the Savannah's donation is a welcome addition to the streetlight budget.
