So there is a streetlight that is out on your street or your favorite after-dark walking route.
The streetlight system in the public right of way in the City of Treasure Island belongs to and is the responsibility of the local power company, Duke Energy, to maintain. Occasionally, we in the Public Works Department will get requests from citizens to respond to street light issues. While we don’t mind helping in this issue, it is much more expedient and efficient for the citizen who has discovered the out of service streetlight to report it themselves. Calling the Public Works Department just puts another person in the communication link, requires us to come out to the site to get the pole number and takes us away from our job of maintaining the infrastructure that we are responsible for.
So, how do I report a streetlight that is out of service?
This is a photograph of a power pole number tag. They are typically located 7 to 8 feet above the grade level on the pole facing the street side. In this case the pole number is clearly shown as 172231. If the street light is out of service on this pole, simply write down the pole number and the closest address where the pole is located. Pass this information on to Duke Energy through their website at the following link:
They will provide this number and location to the street light crew that repairs the lights. Shortly, this light should be returned to service.
