DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton city commissioners approved a plan to improve the street lighting, but taxpayers will have to foot some of the bill.

We first told you about the plan last week. It will convert all 18,000 street lights to LEDs.

City leaders say that will reduce energy costs and make neighborhoods brighter.

The average homeowner will have to pay $25.00 per year for a period of six years.

Leaders say homeowners should get a notice in the mail over the next week or so. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
