Lights out in Clintonville
City leaders had to come up with $357,000 in budget cuts so they came up with an idea to turn off some of the streetlights at night.
Resident Carol Oestreich says it's a bad idea for people that like to walk at night and for children out late playing sports.
The city has turned off about 70 lights, or about 10 percent of streetlights. City administrator Lisa Kuss says that will save about $7,000 a year. She also commented that streets are still partially lit, so safety is not being compromised, and police officers are still out patrolling the streets.
