The conduit is hanging at an angle away from a utility pole numbered "2137" with a loose wire hanging from the end.

I'll call UI...
I called UI and they said they'll send someone out. (It could be a cable or phone company issue, but I figure the power company is the best place to start!)
I'll let you know what happens. In the mean time, thanks for the (excellent) advice.
A REALLY nice guy from UI just stopped by. He's not sure it's a UI issue, but promised to send an engineer to investigate.
Welcome to the neighborhood! Glad to have another set of eyes out there and another seeclickfix fan.
Please call me or email me. Find contact info at dildine25.org

I *heart* Westville...
I apologize for the confusion.
The issue does not concern a streetlight. It's a metal conduit attached to a utility pole on McKinley Avenue. The conduit is hanging away from the pole at an angle.
I called UI and they sent a truck. The technician said it did not appear to be a UI wire, but that he would send an engineer to have a look. UI has not, to my knowledge, done so.
The technician did mention that there used to be fire alarm boxes on the street, and that the wire might have been left there when they were removed.
I'm a bit frustrated...
A VERY kind gentleman from UI showed up to look into the problem yesterday morning, and the conduit was GONE.
I'd like to thank SeeClickFix, UI, Eddie, the mystery repair team, my high school english teacher... oh wait, that's another speech...
Thanks so much to one and all!
Voting lets your government know.
