The City of Flint will hold a second public hearing this evening on the proposed street lighting assessment district.

According to a release on the City of Flint website, as part of the Fiscal Year 2013 budget the nearly $3 million a year cost of Flint’s street lighting operation and its effect on the General Fund was considered. The release continues that the City of Flint cannot keep providing street lighting without a reduction in other services, including police and fire.

The tentative fee for the street lighting assessment will be $74.22 per property, a change of $12.22 from the $62 estimate in the original estimates. City officials say the change in price is a reduction in the number of properties upon which a special assessment can be levied.

After tonight’s meeting, Emergency Manager Michael Brown will determine if a special assessment district is to be created, and if so, what the amount of the assessment will be. The assessment will then be added to the summer tax bill.

The meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers on the third floor of City Hall.
