During the past couple of months, the city of Newton has been installing new LED street lights in the downtown area. Replacement of the existing lights will continue each year until all street lights have been switched out.

“Installing LED lights will save the city of Newton about half the operating cost of the existing high pressure sodium lights,” Public Works and Utilities Director Wilce Martin said. “We’re pleased to be replacing these lights, which will also last much longer.”
