SEPT. 13, 2022 - City of Allen will enter an annual contract with Standard Utility Construction, Inc., for maintenance of City-owned streetlights in an amount not to exceed $325,000. This replaces the City’s current maintenance contract which has reached the end of its term.

The City hires a contractor to handle repairs to community streetlights that are not maintained by HOAs or the utility company. Residents can report streetlight outages using the MyAllen app.

The contract consists of two components:

  1. Monthly audit of streetlight operation and routine maintenance for any discovered outages for 3,638 streetlights (annual expense of $202,782.12); and
  2. Non-routine maintenance (e.g., knock-down replacement) as those occur over time, establishing unit prices for pole replacement, labor, traffic control and equipment.

Funds for this service are included in the Engineering Department’s operational funds budget for Fiscal Year 2022-2023.
