SALT LAKE CITY — Salt Lake residents will soon pay to keep streetlights on.
The Salt Lake City Council passed a new fee Tuesday that will pay for repairs, upgrades and maintenance of area streetlights.
The fee will be $3.73 per home per month. Commercial, government and school buildings also will be charged a streetlight fee based on their street frontage.
The fee is expected to generate an estimated $3.6 million per year to the newly established street light enterprise fund and will show up on utility bills in January or February.
