Lancaster’s village streets could get brighter and possibly save the village money.
That’s the hope of village leaders who will hear proposals Aug. 16 from two companies pitching more efficient and brighter LED street lighting for Lancaster’s village streets.
The board is studying two proposals for LED street light conversion from the light standards now owned by New York State Electric & Gas throughout the village, except for lights along West Main Street and the historic section of Central Avenue.
A village committee led by Trustee Dawn Robinson has been studying the projected efficiency and whether some streets are overlit or underlit, along with the projected cost savings if the village owned the lights and poles and converted them to LED lighting.
The Aug. 16 meetings with the companies are at 6 and 6:30 p.m. in the Municipal Building, 5423 Broadway.
