Street lights that are owned by the Municipality of East Hants are to be reported to the Municipality if they are malfunctioning.  You can report a broken or malfunctioning streetlight to the Municipality by e-mailing streetlights@easthants.ca or by calling 1-866-758-2299 x 103.

A streetlight is typically owned by the Municipality if it is located on a wooden NSPI pole, it is a LED (Light Emitting Diode) type fixture, and it is road way facing.

A streetlight is typically privately owned if it is facing away from the roadway toward private property or driveway, or if it is located away from the street/road on private property, or if it is not a LED type fixture.

Privately owned streetlights/security lights that are rented from Nova Scotia Power are to be reported to NSPI when they are malfunctioning. (You can report a broken or malfunctioning street light to NSPI by calling 1-877-428-6004 and selecting option 3 or by filling out an electronic form on their website.)
