Energy decision reserved

Councillors yesterday reserved a decision on whether to spend an extra $65,000 next year on an invest-to-save initiative, such as upgrading the lighting at the Civic Centre.

About $160,000 not spent this financial year on upgrades to energy efficient lighting is to be carried forward to next year, but staff had requested the council add another $65,000 to complete the lighting upgrade in the Civic Centre, saying it would save the council money in the long run.

After some discussion, councillors decided to, subject to their final deliberations, carry forward the $160,000 to be used for invest-to-save energy projects.

They will decide at the end of the week whether to add the $65,000.
