New Eagle Borough Council approved the request to update lighting at the sewage plant garage at the May 2 council meeting.
The borough currently purchases the bulbs at a cost of $180 per bulb and replaces the bulbs yearly. The LED bulbs will cost $80 per bulb and will cost less to operate. The lighting will also be brighter, according to plant representatives. Council approved the purchase of 30 bulbs at a cost of $2,400.
Also at the meeting, Council announced the lease of Jimmy Rice Memorial Ballfield by Ringgold Youth Athletic Association is pending receipt of the insurance binder and specifications for a shed to be erected at the field by the association for the storage of a tractor. The field will be open to the public on non-game days, and the athletic association will maintain the field and pay utilities.
