City streetlights are owned and maintained by Duke Energy.

The street lighting system in Treasure Island belongs to and is the responsibility of the local power company, Duke Energy, to maintain. Occasionally, the Public Works Department receives requests from citizens to respond to street light issues. While we don’t mind helping in this issue, it is more expedient and efficient for the citizen who has discovered the out-of-service streetlight to report it themselves.

To report a streetlight that is out of service:

light pole with numberThis 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. They will provide this number and location to the street light crew that repairs the lights. Soon thereafter, this light should be returned to service.
