Repair Completion
Repairs are generally completed within three (3) to four (4) working days, with the exception of knockdowns/ emergencies. Knockdowns are considered streetlight poles that are completely damaged (usually through a traffic accident) and the streetlight cannot be repaired. The City contracts with an outside vendor to repair knockdowns/emergencies.  These repairs should be completed within fifteen (15) working days of when the contractor has been notified.
