Eckville Town Council is moving forward with the solar powered streetlights along Main Street
Council, at the regular scheduled meeting on Oct. 28, voted to allow Administration to purchase 13 light fixtures to illuminate 50 Street.
Twelve of the lights will line Main Street, while number 13 will serve as a spare.
The streetlights will cost $13,535 each for a total of $128,091 plus GST and the cost of delivery. The cost of installation is not included in this price.
The 22 feet tall streetlights will feature a double solar panel with four heavy duty batteries.
The existing light across from Mountain View Financial will not be removed as it provides light to the area for the camera.
At the meeting Council also decided to look in to the option of starting the new bi-weekly recycling program a month early.
Currently the program is set to roll out Jan. 1, 2020, but the bins have arrived and there is potential to start for Dec. 1.
On Oct. 28 an Organizational Meeting was also held and Colleen Ebden was re-appointed as Deputy Mayor.
The next regular scheduled meeting will take place on Nov. 12 at the Council Chambers.
