A new LED street light project got the green light in Lanark Highlands Township after council awarded the $72,266 bid to Black and McDonald Limited.
The recommendation is that the surplus funds (just under $22,000) from the project will be set aside to replace the lights at the Clyde Memorial and Vincent Hall Memorial ball parks sometime in the future, noted Ryan Morton, CAO/clerk of the township. The public works department had budgeted $94,000 for the work.
(...)It is estimated that the current annual wattage of 26,468 will be reduced to 9,622 with the new LED lights.
