Street Light Maintenance

Contra Costa County Public Works Department is responsible for maintaining street lights within County Service Area (CSA) L-100 and County Facilities District (CFD) 2010-1. Public Works works with Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) and the 19 City offices within Contra Costa County (County) to determine which agency is responsible for repairing street lights within and outside the County's Lighting Districts. CSA L-100 and CFD 2010-1 are administered by the Special Districts section at Public Works.

Residents whose address is currently within County’s CSA L-100 or CFD 2010-1 boundary pay assessment fees, which appear on their property tax bill. These assessment fees help with administration, operation and maintenance costs of existing street lights. Therefore, new or additional street lights cannot be installed per the request of residents unless it is deemed necessary and the properties are annexed into CSA L-100 or CFD 2010-1.
