Street Closing Procedure
What is the procedure for temporarily closing a City street for a parade or special event?
First, you must secure a permit by contacting the City Manager's Office at 349-1030. Copies of the City's Parades and Special Events Ordinance, List of Available City Venues and Permit Applications are available in the office located in Reidsville City Hall, 230 W. Morehead Street, or online in our Document Center, along with a Waiver form. (Hard copies can be obtained by calling the City Manager's Office at 349-1030.)
Applications to close temporarily a City street must be filed with the City Manager at least 30 calendar days and not more than 180 days before the date of the proposed event. If a request is denied, the applicant may appeal to the City Council, which will require a special meeting that must be advertised at least 48 hours in advance of the Council meeting.

Citizens can report light outages on both public and private property by going to the Duke Energy website, https://www.duke-energy.com/customer-service/request-light-repair. Type in the address nearest to the light pole. Once the map is displayed, click on the appropriate light pole. Only public light poles will be displayed; however, if you want to report a light outage on private property, hover over the correct address, and you should be able to report the problem. If no problems have been reported, click on the "Report a Problem" button and fill out the necessary request.
To report a streetlight outage on public property within the City limits of Reidsville, citizens can also call the City Manager's Office at City Hall, 336-349-1030.
The Deputy City Clerk is in charge of this procedure for the City. Once she learns of the outage, the Deputy Clerk uses Duke Energy's online system to report City streetlight outages. Duke Energy informs us that if it is a standard light outage, the company should be able to correct the situation within three business days.
There is a current moratorium on adding new streetlights throughout the City due to budgetary constraints.
