Street Light Outage

Street Light Requirements


On city maintained streets, the city is coordinating our efforts with the power companies to enhance street lights which are being installed at every intersection and approximately every 150-200-feet on streets, bringing our system to AASHTO standards. This also includes decorative lighting.

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.
