Cost of LED Christmas lights approaching $1 million
San Antonio, $1 million might not seem like a lot of money. You, me and Dr. Evil may beg to differ. The cost of having LED Christmas lights on the River Walk, introduced in 2011, is approaching seven figures. When City Council reconvenes in August, it’s expected to vote on the latest lights contract — for the installation and maintenance of the lights this holiday season — worth $298,060 by Preferred Landscape & Lighting, which did the job in 2011.
