Council members in Hazleton have different views on whether the city should pursue a project that would use money saved from upgrading 1,385 aged street lights to high-efficiency LED units to pay for the work.

 

While Councilman Jeff Cusat believes the city should move forward with an energy-savings project that is guaranteed to save the city at least $876,419 in electricity and maintenance costs over the next decade, council President Jack Mundie said he still has questions as the governing body continues reviewing the proposal.
