Street Light Out

Street lights are managed by the Township and repaired in partnership New Market-Tay Hydro or Hydro One (rural areas).

If you notice a street light out, please contact the Public Works Department at ext. 230 or ext. 255.

Request - New Street Light

Street lights are not located in front of every residence but are placed in locations that provide the best lighting for an area or are placed in areas as increased safety precautions.

If you feel your street should have additional street lights, you are asked to submit your request in writing, along with the names and signatures of neighbours supporting your request.  Please ensure you include:

  • the location of the proposed new street light;
  • names, addresses and signatures of your supporting neighbours;
  • acknowledgment that the cost of installation will be levied to the owners in the specific area.

Your letter will be considered by Council whether or not the installation of additional street lighting is required and you will be contacted accordingly.
