The City’s street lighting program is designed to provide well-lighted streets throughout the City, thereby increasing pedestrian and vehicular safety, suppressing crime and increasing street capacities. The program also includes lighting on the state highways within the City.

The street lighting fixtures on wooden poles are owned and maintained by the Potomac Electric Power Company (PEPCO), for which the City pays a monthly fee. New subdivisions are required to provide underground utility service and provide street lighting. These fixtures then belong to the City, and maintenance services are purchased from a contractor.

To report a street light issue, please contact the Public Works Department or use the City’s online service request application.
