News Correspondent

Eagle River Light & Water has been asked to turn on the streetlights along Highway 45 north of the city and to send the electric bill to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (DOT), acĀ­cording to utility Manager Pat Weber.

The town of Lincoln previously claimed the estimated $10,000 annual cost of powering the lights was excessive and had 47 lights turned off.

However, the DOT Wisconsin Rapids office provided a letter to the city utility asking they turn the street lamps back on.

Information from Weber inĀ­dicated that the DOT will be billed a fixed maintenance fee of $3.50
