At the April 26, 2023, #NewtownPA Board of Supervisors (BOS) meeting, Michael Fuller of Keystone Lighting Solutions (KLS) presented a summary Phase 2 of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC) LED Street Light Procurement Program.

After the presentation, the BOS unanimously approved a resolution AUTHORIZING COOPERATIVE PURCHASING AND PARTICIPATION IN THE REGIONAL STREETLIGHT PROCUREMENT PROGRAM ADMINISTERED BY THE DELAWARE VALLEY REGIONAL PLANNING COMMISSION (specifically authorizing the township to enter into Phase 2 of the DVRPC LED Street Light Procurement Program.



johnmacknewtown's insight:


Phase 2 consists of Design and Auditing. KLS will perform the field audit of the existing lights and then prepare a report on the design and cost options. At the end of Phase 2, the Township will decide to work through DVRPC to complete the work. There is typically a 20% reduction on costs through this program than if the municipality did it on their own.
