Streetlights in Maplewood are typically at intersections, the ends of cul-de-sacs, at sharp turns and steep hills and at the entrance to or within publicly-owned facilities.
Street lighting within the public right-of-way is defined as a traffic-safety function as opposed to a security function.
If an established area is particularly dark and has an increase in crime you should contact XCel Energy at 800-960-6235 to discuss the possibility of having a "security light" installed. Typically if there is an existing electrical source and pole it would be approximately $10 to install and then about $7 / month for electrical costs.
Xcel Energy maintains most streetlights in Maplewood. Information about the malfunctioning light can be provided to Xcel through their website
or by contacting the Public Works Department at (651) 249-2400.
Burned out street lights are normally repaired by Xcel within 24 hours of notification.
