Street Light Out - Where to Report?

Recommended Posts

The street light in front of my house is out. It's one of the new square fixtures. Does anyone know where to report the outage? 

Ajijic, Las Salvias.

Just go to or call the Ayuntamiento in the Palacio Municipal and ask for the office "encargado de alumbrado publico".  It usually takes a while, but you never know.

I have had excellent results reporting street lights.  I always write it out in Spanish telling them exactly where the light is.  I have also marked the pole with blue painter's tape when there are 2 or more poles in front of one address, or the pole is in front of a house that shows no number, or at a vacant lot (and tell them in the letter to look for the blue tape).  Remember, they come out in daylight to replace bulbs and do not apparently have the means to 'test' them.  

Take your letter upstairs at the Ajijic delegacion.  The woman at the desk will enter the letter's receipt on her daily log.  Normally the lights are replaced in a few days, a week at most.
