Street lighting areas are special taxing districts created by county ordinance, which allow for the installation and operation of street lights within a specified area or community. The recurring costs of operating the street lights are then assessed to the property owners within the specified area or community through annual tax bills. Requests for the creation of street lighting districts must be made by petitioning the County Commission.
