Kendall seeks resident feedback on LED street lights, new water district

KENDALL – The Town of Kendall wants to hear from residents about the brightness of new LED lights going in the town, and also see if there is enough interest for a new water district.

The Town Board has already approved switching high-pressure sodium lights with energy-efficient LEDs.

Town Supervisor Tony Cammarata said the change will save the town about $2,000 to $2,500 annually in lower electricity bills for the 90 street lights. However, the town hasn’t decided if it wants some brighter lights in the business district on Roosevelt Highway. Lower-level LEDs could go along the residential streets.

The town will have an informational meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday the Kendall Junior-Senior High School Auditorium.

“We want the public’s opinion,” Cammarata said this morning.

A National Grid representative will be at the 7 p.m. to discuss the street light options.

After the LED meeting, there will be a 7:45 meeting at the school auditorium to see if there is interest in creating a new water district.

Kendall last year constructed its first new water district in a decade. Cammarata said there remains several gaps around town without public water.

“Right now it’s a jigsaw puzzle and we want to end the jigsaw puzzle,” Cammarata said. “We want to get as many residents with water as possible.”
