Friends and Neighbors,
The Town is currently having our street lights converted to LED Street Lights. This should be completed soon.
For the Town of Minerva this will result in lower power cost with improved lighting for our streets.
The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority states “By replacing conventional street lights with energy efficient LED technology, communities can reduce street light energy use by as much as 65 percent, generating significant cost savings and emission reductions. Because street light electricity is typically a municipal expense, the opportunity to cut costs in the municipal budget is large.”
On another note:
COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths across the United States are rising. We need to do our part. As Cold weather moves in, we spend more time indoors, and as the holidays approach, we need to take steps to slow the spread of COVID-19. Wear a mask, stay at least 6 feet apart, avoid crowds, and wash your hands often.
