Pictured here are just a few of the 1,848 working fixtures removed from by Mayor Bramson in order to spend over $1 million of taxpayer money to burnish his resume by adding LED lighting to the Transit Center and New Roc City Garage.
The lights the Mayor has discarded had a useable life of more than 20 years. They were installed a few years ago when the Transit Center was built and before that when New Roc City was built. They cost a couple million dollars and were supposed to last 20-30 years. The Mayor has now deemed them worthless and is sending them to a landfill.
All so Mayor Bramson can hold a press conference to say how "green" New Rochelle is under his watch while ignoring that over 1,800 functioning light fixtures with two decades of useful life left are on the way to a landfill.
Not very green to me.
So, why are they on their way to the landfill after such a short time?
Read the Story of the Fashion Show for the Press and why it is not as Green as it appears to the tax payers.
Read the story of why the City of New Rochelle did not do the Homework and why we overpaid for the concept and contract to Green our Parking Structures.
