Mayor Hubert Yopp
City Councilman DeAndre Windom is taking on incumbent Mayor Hubert Yopp. The de-commissioning of some street lights in the city is a hot issue.
Crews are installing new, more efficient lights at intersections in Highland Park, so one light will replace about six of the old street lights. Some residents are concerned while they wait for the upgrades to be completed.
Saturday’s fires, which burned a vacant apartment complex and furniture store, are thought to be arson.
Highland Park Mayor Hubert Yopp met Monday with department heads to talk about the city’s water crisis — and to explore possible remedies.
