Sidewalks & Streetlights
Sidewalks in Loyalist Township are regularly inspected. If it is determined that a sidewalk is in need of repair, maintenance will occur as required. The Township asks that sidewalks are not blocked, and kept free of debris at all times.
Make A Call, Prevent A Fall
If you see a hazard on the sidewalk – a crack, a hole, uneven concrete or any dangerous situation - call the Loyalist Township “Make A Call, Prevent A Fall” hotline at 613-386-7351, ext. 116, and leave a message with the following details:
- Where it is
- What it is
- Did anyone fall?
- When did it happen?
Streetlights along Township roads and within Township parks are owned and operated by Loyalist Township. Streetlights, signals, and flashing/warning lights in the right-of-way of County roads are the responsibility of the County of Lennox & Addington. In many cases, the poles may be owned by other utilities.
In the fall of 2018, Loyalist Township converted its existing cobra head-style streetlights from high-pressure sodium (HPS) to light-emitting diode (LED) fixtures. For more information on this project, please visit our LED Streetlight Conversion Project page.
To assist in having streetlights repaired, residents should report the pole number and location when requesting streetlight repairs. Pole numbers are located approximately 3m from the ground, facing the street. The pole numbers are printed on a stainless steel band. Pole numbers consist of one alpha character, followed by a three-digit number, such as A310 or P037.
If you notice a light that is out, stays on or turns on and off, contact Departmental Inquiries Section in the Infrastucture Department, and provide the necessary details (location, pole number and problem). Please note, the repair may take up to 14 days, or longer if the utilities provider is required to assist with repairs. Repairs may be delayed if streetlight pole number is not reported.
