The Public Works Department supports our citizens by planning, constructing and maintaining quality infrastructure, healthy water resources and high-quality water reclamation services.


To Report A Street Light Outage

Street lights in Erie are owned and maintained by the power companies, therefore the best way to get a street light outage repaired is for you to report it to the power company that you pay your bill to (United or Xcel).

To expedite the process, you should have the pole number and nearest intersection/street or cul-de-sac. You can call or submit the request via their website:

For after-hours or weekend emergencies, please call 303-926-2858
