A new proposal will go before Augusta Commissioner next week when it comes to streetlights.
City leaders are looking at different plants to eliminate a growing shortfall in the streetlight fund.
Commissioner Wayne Guilfoyle is proposing an 85-dollar-a year residential fee.
But unlike other options on the table–this would affect only those currently paying for streetlights.
” “It’s not fair to the people who does not have streetlights to have to pay the same the same thing that somebody that does again it’s not a fair methodology not so ever,” said Commissioner Guilfoyle.
Commissioner Sammie Sias is proposing an 87 dollar a year fee that would be paid by all property owners whether or not they currently have lights on their street.
