Reporting Lights on Liberty Square

Any street light on the Liberty Square that is malfunctioning should be reported to the city engineer’s office at 816.439.4500.

Request a New Street Light

To request a new street light in your neighborhood, please complete the Street Light Petition Form (PDF) and submit it to the office of the City Engineer located on the third floor of City Hall at 101 East Kansas.


The City will consider street lighting at locations where a petition is received and verified from 100% of the residents along the street or in the adjacent area to the proposed street light. Due to the high cost of street lights, new street lights petitions are carefully reviewed before being approved. Once the street light petition form is received and verified, the requested lights will be submitted to KCP&L for design and installation. 

Length of Process

This process can take up to 180 days to complete.
