More Streetlights To Be Removed, Customers Have Option Of Owning

 

Utility crews plan to start removing another round of streetlights in Sturgeon Bay starting the week of October 22.

But Sturgeon Bay Utilities is reminding residents that they do have the option of 'saving' a streetlight targeted for removal if they're willing to take ownership of it.

SBU Electric Supervisor Jason Bieri says customers can take ownership of light fixtures and arms free of charge but must agree to pay the annual energy charges of approximately $105.00. The customer must also agree to pay for future material costs including lamp and eye replacements.

Bieri says exceptions to that rule are lights located on wooden streetlight poles that need to be removed because of their age.

"Some of those wood poles that are just holding up the streetlights are rotten," says Bieri. "Those have to come down no matter what."

Bieri says requests to take ownership of a light must be made by Wednesday, October 17.

The city has been removing streetlights as a means to save money. The latest round of removals -- which includes about 100 lights -- was approved by the City Council October 2. You can view the list by clicking the link below.
