LED Streetlights – Mars Hill

Hello Sunshine Request!

I would like to inquire about any feasibility studies, internal (town staff) communications, or cost/benefit analyses on the part of the Town of Mars Hill regarding the implementation and/or replacement of streetlights with LED lamps. Seeing as though our area is solely dependent upon coal-generated electricity, and improvement in energy conservation is hugely important!

I would like for the request to encompass the last five years, and for any email or memorandum communication to be in an easy-to-read format.

Thank you!

Editor’s Note: We apologize for the long delay in sending this request. The message sent to government will be as follows:

    The Town of Mars Hill does not possess any documents responsive to your request. I will offer the information to the requester that the Town has upgraded street lamps to LED but no study or analysis was done in making that decision.

    Good Afternoon Town of Mars Hill,

     

    I work for a website called Sunshine Request www.sunshinerequest.com. We built a site that makes it easier to make public records requests by filling out a simple form, and the results of any requests are posted on our site. This allows citizens to learn more about our local government, while saving staff from having to fulfill duplicate requests. If you have any questions about the project, please let me know, and I’ll be happy to answer.

     

    We received a request for information that may be available in your office. If there’s another party that we should be contacting about this request then please let us know.

     

    Here are the details sent by the requester:
