What is the $5.00 monthly Streetlight Fee, and how does it relate to the Streetlight Conversion Project?

The City of Bartlett pays MLGW a monthly electric fee for streetlights, and the city-wide streetlight conversion project will significantly reduce that monthly cost. This recurring bill is paid from the City’s Street Aid Fund, which is supported by Gas Tax earnings received from the State of Tennessee. The $5.00 per month fee will cover the reduced MLGW electric cost for Bartlett streetlights and allow the Gas Tax revenue to be applied directly to city-wide paving projects annually. In previous years, the City has issued long-term bonds or notes for these paving projects. Therefore, the $5.00 monthly fee will cover the reduced cost associated with streetlights, remove the City’s dependency on bonds or notes for paving projects, and subsequently eliminate interest costs to the City.
