The Forest Park Village Council (US) voted Monday to borrow $1.8 million from Forest Park National Bank to pay for the replacement of all streetlights, alley lights and traffic lights in Forest Park with low-wattage LED bulbs. The village's 1,200 fixtures will be replaced starting this fall, according to Village Administrator Tim Gillian. At Monday's meeting, the village approved a contract with Meade Electric, Inc. of suburban McCook. According to company representative Michael Knutson, the company will order the new fixtures for the lights and start installation between December 1 and January 31.
