Cortland Beautification Committee LED bulbs for snowflakes


The Cortland Beautification Committee had an opportunity to buy LED bulbs for the snowflakes at a cost of $0.85 per bulb (down from $1.25 when the Parks Board last looked at the cost in the spring). The snowflakes are a joint labor between the City and the Committee where the city owns the snowflakes but the committee does all of the maintenance and upkeep. The Beautfication Committee is asking for reimbursement of all or some of the cost of the bulbs. Katie Watson made a motion to reimburse the Cortland Beautification Committee $3,329.25 for the LED lights for the snowflakes, seconded by Frank Daugherty. ALL AYES, MOTION APPROVED.
