Meeting Date:   June 13, 2000

 Subject/Title:     PG&E Streetlight Installation

 Submitted by:     Engineering: J. Stevenson

 Approved by:     Jon Elam, City Manager


Authorize the City Engineer to proceed with the installation of streetlights and to continue checking for additional areas in the City which may need street lights.


On August 25,1998 the City Council authorized the City Engineer to proceed with the installation of approximately 49 streetlights in various areas of the City.


The Council has continually expressed interest in improving the quality of life for our residents and encouraged downtown commercial use. To that end, the members of the Downtown Parking Task Force have requested that staff research the possibility of having PG&E install streetlights on existing utility poles in the downtown area that do not have lighting.  The intent is to encourage the public to use available alleyway parking areas that will be made safer by additional lighting.  Staff has completed the second phase of that effort and a preliminary request has been forwarded to PG&E for the installation of approximately 13 streetlights on existing utility poles.

 PG&E‘s policy regarding this program is that they will furnish and install the lights at no charge and bill the City on a monthly basis for the energy utilized.  Previous lights installed have included shielding to ensure that the lights illuminate the street and not residents’ windows.  The estimated cost of shielding is approximately $150 per light.  This phase of light installation is primarily in commercial areas and will not require shielding.  The cost of power for the lights on a monthly basis will be approximately $10 per month per light, depending on the wattage of the light, or $1,560 annually.
