Street light reduction plan underway in city of Wellston; residents can pay for lights
During the Wellston City Council meeting of Thursday, April 1, Director of Service/Safety Mark Jacobs said the process to turn off one-half of the city's street lights had begun.

He said sections of the city had been determined and lights would be turned off in one section and when that was complete, lights in the next section would go.

The first lights to go, said Jacobs, are alley lights and some in the outlying areas of the city.

The lights are being turned off due to the city's current financial emergency and is part of the city's Financial Recovery Plan. There are 243 lights in the city.

Jacobs said businesses and residents wanting to keep a light that is scheduled to be turned off can do so, but this is handled by AEP, not the city.

Those wanting to keep a light on will pay a monthly charge for the light and can make arrangements with AEP by calling 1-740-985-3210.
