Report streetlight issues to Public Works


ROSEBURG, OR – As we near the shortest and darkest day of the year on the winter solstice, you may take more notice of streetlights around Roseburg.

There are about 2,000 streetlights in town. Of those, 90% are owned and maintained by Pacific Power. The rest are owned by the City.

If you see a streetlight that is out or not working properly, please call the Roseburg Public Works Department at 541-492-6730 to report the issue.

It is helpful if you can include a street address or the pole number, which can be found on a tag about 5 feet up on the pole.

Public Works staff will send the report to the power company if necessary, or to a local electrical contractor the City uses to maintain the City-owned lights.

Please be aware that streetlight repairs may take 3 to 6 weeks to complete.
