To assist the Electric Light Division in locating and repairing non-functioning street lights in the quickest manner possible, please be sure to identify the location of the light pole as precisely as you can. This will allow the workers to quickly attend to the problem light, and not spend additional time trying to determine which light is the problem when multiple lights are present in the same area.

The following information can greatly help when submitting a report:
