A plan to upgrade street lights to LED in Muskegon is moving forward.

The city commission voted Tuesday, Oct. 25, to go forward with the assessment. The plan will cost property owners $18 a year for the next 10 years.

It's estimated the upgrade will cut $350,000 a year from energy bills for the city. Currently, the city uses sodium vapor lights that use more electricity to operate.

There are nearly 2,000 street lights in the city.
