Did you know? Streetlight edition

The Destin Log

Streetlights are normally installed approximately 300 feet apart. Certain situations may warrant placement closer together. Those situations are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. These standards are set to provide effective and safe roadway and pedestrian travel. Additionally, the standards are set to limit expenses because your tax dollars pay for the repair and monthly usage of the lights. If you see a malfunctioning streetlight, you can call the city at 837-6869 or Gulf Power at 1-800-487-6937. Additionally, you can also access both the city and Gulf Power on their respective websites. Gulf Power is responsible for most streetlight repairs and normally completes the work within three to five work days.
