What’s so special about LED streetlights that it needs a separate meeting?
Lots. Or so says Councillor Roy O’Donnell, who is pushing for a special council meeting on the issue for the Town of Shelburne.
The cost to change all the town’s streetlights to LED would be substantial and council had previously decided against making the purchase all at once.
But O’Donnell believes new information could change things and wants a special discussion as a result. He says the potential savings would be more than worth the expense.
“We could save ourselves $50,000 a year,” said O’Donnell. “That’s worth talking about.”
