The City of Sturgeon Bay’s Community Protection and Services Committee will be considering the current Street Light Policy next Thursday. Chair Barbara Allmann says some residents have recently come forward with concerns about the street lighting in their neighborhood. She says the city decided to reduce some of the lightings as a cost-savings measure back in 2012.
Allmann says at this point any additional street lighting in the city is at the expense of the property owners. The current city lighting calls for “a light be provided at every road intersection and at locations approximately 500 feet from each intersection and near schools, churches, and public gathering locations.” The Community Protection and Services Committee will be meeting at 4:30 pm on Thursday at City Hall.
