Ypsilanti land owners will soon be paying more money for street lighting. The money will be used to help pay for 500 new LED streetlights through out the city, though
Ypsilanti already has around 300 LED streetlights.
The Ypsilanti City Council approved a special assessment fee at this week's meeting that will charge residents around $120 over the next two years for each parcel of land they own. The city will replace older sodium and mercury-vapor lights with more efficient, longer-lasting LEDs.
