Ms. Kelley questioned why she was paying a street light utility when there are no street lights in
her subdivision. Mr. Brock advised that she could submit a petition to the City for street lights to
be installed.

I think Ms. Kelley makes a very good point. Not sure why she would have to submit a petition, shouldn't the city be more receptive of common sense questions with common sense city-resident solutions?

By that rationale I should be allowed a tee time at Mar-A-Lago. 
We are all paying for those weekly trips.

Mayor Routson stated that he receives a phone call every once in awhile because residents have
street lights on their real estate tax bill. He would like to see something worked out with Duke
Energy that lights be installed where they are not currently located. Mr. Brock responded that
we are working with the residents in the Greenridge area to establish an estimate to install lights
at the intersections. Residents do want additional lighting and we will present those residents with
the cost of the intersections and the additional lighting. He noted that the initial cost of putting in
street lights is borne by the residents.


Mrs. McElfresh questioned whether or not residents understood that.   Mr. Hickman added that 
residents see that they are paying for lights and  do not have any on their street.   Mr. Frentzel 
pointed out the justification is that they are utilized as you drive throughout the community.

At Council’s urging, Mr. Brock will look into the different costs for placement of lights where 
they are currently not located and/or not charging for the areas without lights.  Mr. Frentzel 
asked about installing more energy efficient lights and Mr. Brock advised that Duke is finally at 
the point where they are moving toward that direction.
