EAST GREENWICH â€” With three relatively quick unanimous approvals by the Town Council, there will be much-needed improvements to a few areas around the town in the near future.
On Monday at Town Hall, the Council gave the OK to award the bid of Alpha Electrical Contractors, Inc. for the decorative LED street lighting upgrade in the amount of $74,876.85, the lowest of the eight bids Duarte received back.
Joseph Duarte, the director of the Public Works department, told the Council that the LED lights are the first of possibly four projects that the department wants to undertake in terms of improving energy use and take advantage of two grants it received that total $150,031.
