Electrical Bureau & Building Maintenance Information

  • Report a Street Light Problem

    It is necessary to properly identify the exact location of the streetlight. The name of the street it is located on and the closest address of a building.

    • The most helpful information to also be included is the pole number
    • This is a ten-digit number that is located on a yellow metal tag on the pole.
    • An example of this number is 22550-28665.
    • Every pole should have a pole number. If the number is missing from the pole this should be reported along with the exact location.


    Please determine the exact problem with the streetlight.

    • The streetlight is out.
    • The streetlight goes on and off.
    • The streetlight is on during daylight hours.


    The information collected in 1 and 2 should be forwarded to the Bureau of Electrical and Building Maintenance by contacting the person below or filling out this form:

    Phone: (717)-845-9351

    The Electrical Bureau will determine the ownership of the light and will either forward the proper information to Met-Ed to correct the problem or will make a repair if it is a city owned light.

    The Electrical Bureau will log all reports received with the date, the location of the light, and the problem reported. It generally will take Met-Ed two to three weeks to make a repair.
