pursuing energy-saving light-emitting diode equipment, which will save money in the long run, according to City Manager Ed Gil de Rubio. LED lights will increase the original $200,000 lighting budget by $80,000. That figure is $40,000 less than projected costs using traditional lights, and would stretch the payments from three to seven years. That would lower the city’s 2012 payment from $156,000 to $75,400.
