The city is adding street lights on Medlock Bridge Road (between Spalding Drive and S.R. 141) and on Lou Ivy Road. Georgia Power will be installing the new lights; the work is expected to be complete by Sept. 17.
At the August City Council meeting the council decided to expand the lighting throughout the city and staff is working now to identify those areas. Lighting will be added to existing poles. The city will pay for the installation and the cost of electricity.
The city is responsible for lighting the main roads, however, that does not include subdivisions or neighborhoods.
For subdivisions and neighborhoods, residents are required to pay for the installation and ongoing cost of electricity. Those interested may submit a request for lighting, if 80 percent of the neighbors agree, then Georgia Power will install the lights. The costs will be added to individual’s annual Gwinnett County property bill.
