In September 2018, the City of Murrieta completed the purchase of 6,500 streetlights located within the city limits from Southern California Edison (SCE). Any non-emergency issues with streetlights located within the city limits should be reported to the City's contracted streetlight maintenance provider, Siemens Mobility at 800-229-6090, or report the streetlight issue online.
There are exceptions to what streetlights are now owned by the City.
If the streetlights were installed within the past year, they may not have been included in the purchase.
If streetlights are located in a gated community, they are not owned by the City (i.e. - Greer Ranch, Bear Creek)
If the streetlights are on private streets, they are not owned by the City (i.e. - Jackson Crossing, neighborhood along Via Princesa)
If the location is in the unincorporated portion of the County, but has a Murrieta address, then those lights are still maintained by SCE.
Who to Contact
If you are trying to report an issue with a streetlight that is not owned by the City, then please contact your Home Owners Association. If there is an issue with a streetlight that may cause imminent harm to persons or property, then please call 911.
