Reporting Outages

If you have noticed a streetlight that is out, dim or blinking, please call 217-403-4700 during the normal working hours of 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  You can also report a streetlight malfunction on our website:

The following information is useful to identify a specific light:

  • Address where the light is positioned on the street.
  • Side of the street the light is on.
  • Please leave your name and a daytime phone number so we may call with questions if necessary.

Once a report has been made, the City will determine who owns the light. If it is a City-owned light, efforts to repair the light within 48 hours are made. If it is an Illinois Power light, the City will notify Illinois Power of a problem and they are responsible for repairing the light.
