Contra Costa County Public Works Department (The County) is responsible for maintaining street lights within County Service Area (CSA) L-100. We work with Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) and City offices to determine which agency is responsible for installing or repairing street lights within and outside the County's Lighting District.
Residents whose address is currently within a CSA L-100 boundary pay assessment fees, which appear on their property tax bill. These assessment fees help with operation and maintenance costs for the street lights.
If it is determined that an address is not being assessed for the CSA L-100 District, the resident requesting additional street lights would be asked to annex into the CSA L-100 District. After completing the annexation process, street lights can be installed.
Street lights are an important addition to all communities. They provide illumination which may result in a safer environment for residents.
If you have any questions regarding street light repairs, installation or the annexation process, contact the Special Districts section of the Contra Costa County Public Works Department at (925) 313-2286 or via email.
