If you notice a streetlight out in your neighborhood, your call could be the one that is needed to get the light fixed.
Most streetlights in the county are owned by utility companies such as Duke Energy or Johnson County REMC. When a light is out, local governments contact the companies to have them come fix the lights. And once that call is made, utilities say the light should be fixed in about a week.
Companies such as Duke Energy do not do their own inspections on the lights, so they rely on residents, police and local governments to report the locations of burned-out streetlights. Burned-out lights are dangerous for pedestrians and drivers trying to get around an area at night, Franklin city council member Steve Barnett said.
