The historic town of Concord, Mass. has decided to remove street lights in order to save money.
Officials said they hope the move will save the small town more than $35,000 a year. Two hundred street lights have already been taken down.
The new program has received mixed reviews from residents.
"All the streets should have lights for the safety of those who live in them," Concord resident Pat Andrews Cooper said. "It's a safety issue."
However, resident Renate Archibald expressed support for the new plan.
"It's a quiet little town and no wants annoying lights shining in their bedroom windows anyway," he said. "I like that it saves energy."
Residents who want to keep a street light in front of their house must pay $17 a month, town officials said. So far, only five residents have signed up for the program.
