Street Lighting Assessment
On September 14, 2009, the City Commission approved the implementation of a street lighting assessment as a way to fund the costs of street lighting services for residential and commercial properties within the City of Casselberry. This assessment is becoming more common in local municipalities as it is a more equitable way to pay for street lighting services.

Casselberry has more than 1,800 street lights throughout the City. The City currently pays nearly $300,000 annually in light fixture and pole rental, maintenance, and fuel-energy costs. The costs associated with the maintenance of the City's street lights, which used to be paid from the declining Local Option Gas Tax (LOGT) and not property taxes, were successfully funded by the street light assessment during fiscal year 2009-2010. The assessment not only funded the light fixture and pole rental, maintenance, and fuel energy costs, but also allowed the City to address dark areas. In the coming month lighting will be installed along Belle Avenue and Lake Howell Road to further enhance the safety of the streets in our City.

Property owners who currently pay a street light assessment directly to Duke Energy through their Homeowner's Association or through another arrangement would not be assessed an additional fee. However, residents and businesses not currently paying for street lighting are subject to this assessment.
