How do I report a streetlight issue?
Streetlights are leased by the Unified Government from the individual power providers and maintained by each power provider.

Streetlight issues may be reported directly to the power provider or the Department of Transportation and Public Works.

** We are currently replacing many of the county's streetlights with LED bulbs.
To address concerns about the process or to request glare shields, follow the process below:
