Bill 4-14, Streets and Roads
County Street Lights
Bill 4-14, Streets and Roads - County Street Lights, sponsored by Councilmembers
Berliner, Floreen and Riemer, Council Vice President Leventhal, and Councilmembers EIrich,
Andrews, and Navarro, was introduced on January 28, 2014. A Transportation, Infrastructure,
Energy and Environment Committee worksession is tentatively scheduled for February 26,2014
at 9:30 a.m.
4-14 would require any contract that the County enters into to maintain street lights
to be with a company that specializes in LED lights. Many current street lights are outdated and
inefficient, and LED lighting is more energy efficient and requires less maintenance.
Councilmember Berliner explained the purpose of this Bill in his January 14
memorandum describing his proposed energy/environmental package. See ©20 of Bill 2-14,
Agenda Item 13.
The Fiscal and Economic Impact statement for this Bill will be transmitted after March
17 (see ©4).
