« BackAround two million euro to be spent on Kerry’s public lights

Street LightAround two million euro will be spent in 2016 on public lighting in the county.

Kerry County Council says there’s been an increase in the cost of maintaining the public lighting network due to the age of some lights and taking in charge private estates.

A new contract for lighting maintenance is to be tendered in 2016 and a comprehensive survey of lights will also be carried out.

€75,000 will be spent on minor improvements.
