Chestnut Street Lights Meeting 9 Am Saturday July 10 Aetna Township Building, South Street in Chestnut By Mike Lakin In the words of a country song... "That's th/ night the lights went out in Georgia...". Chestnut residents are looking at the same thing. The Chestnut Streetlight Com- mittee is slowly going broke. The Streetlight Committee has been told that they do not have the power to go to the voters for an increase in property taxes to cover the expenses of keeping the power on. The" small increase the com- mittee has been able to ask for on the tax levy each year may not cover the cost of streetlights before the reserves run out. One idea the committee came up with was Adopt-A-Pole to raise funds. There also some jars around town for spare change donations. The committee is also looking into hardship grants from AMEREN. The Streetlight Committee reports spending $1500 a year more than its income. In about 3 years, the number of streetlights will have to be cut from 27 to about 16. This cut would allow str.eet- !ight finances to financially break even. Tile Streetlight Committee also pays for two meters in one of the parks in Chestnut. One meter is for the tt.O.EE. Mobile Medical Unit. The other is at the pavilion and used for a variety of purposes. Both panels supply power during town events when neces- sary. Salt Creek A00ic LiD lo6 ,'5. Washington Mt.
