California City Threatens to Shut Off Street Lights Due to Budget Crunch

Print comment Post Comments
The north San Diego County city of Vista says they will turn off half the city's residential street lights unless property owners pony up more cash, according to CBS Los Angeles. So how much will it cost you to turn those street lights back on? Between $4 and $20 a year, according to the report.

Of course, when city budgets go sour, that's when fingers get pointed... right back at city planners. Vista residents are complaining about the bright lights at the city's new City Hall.

I mean, just look at it!

Oops, sorry. That's not Vista City Hall, that's the Bellagio casino in Las Vegas. Here's the Vista City Hall.

"City spokeswoman Andrea McCullough tells the North County Times that lights in the park behind the building have been shut off and lights in front of the Civic Center have been dimmed," CBS Los Angeles reports.
