SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- Salina city commissioners are considering a $3.1 million proposal to upgrade lighting downtown.

The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/Vyt0LQ ) that commissioners said this week that they liked the $3.1 million proposal by Johnson Controls to replace 347 outdated lights downtown with LED lights. If approved, the lights would be installed by Nov. 23, 2013.

Johnson Controls says the current decorative lights, which the city owns, were installed in the 1980s and are outdated. The lights cost the city $6,995 a year to replace and maintain. Johnson Controls says the LED lights are lower maintenance and would eventually save the city money in operation costs.

The new lights will occasionally have to be replaced but are expected to be at 70 percent of their original brightness in 23 years.
