Street Light Outage

Street Light Requirements

On city maintained streets, the city is coordinating efforts with the power companies to ensure street lights meet the City Street Light Standards based on available funding. The city is also working with the power companies to convert Sodium Vapor street lights to LED lights as a cost saving measure. Please contact the Transportation Department with any questions regarding our street lighting policy.

A street light is also required on a dead-end street that is over 200 feet long and on all cul-de-sacs. Additionally, the city may have additional street lights installed if such lighting is needed in sharp curves that may create a safety hazard for motorist.
