Cost of the project will be about $10,000 and will be taken from the light fund of the Municipal Utilities at no additional cost to the local taxpayers. A total of 33 new concrete street poles are in the process of being installed. Fluorescent light fixtures from downtown will be moved onto these new poles and new fixtures, with twice the lighting power of the old ones, will be installed on the downtown poles. THE ENTIRE project will take about two months to complete according to Jim Palmer. Utilities Superintendent. Ninete'en of the new concrete street light''p'bles are being installed on State street from Jones east to Phillips street. Another is being installed on the corner of Jones and Call streets. Eight more new poles will be placed on Call street from Jones to Moore, a distance of two blocks. Three others will be placed on Harlan street from Call to State street. An extensive street-lighting program was instituted here 12 years ago, during the Kossuth Centennial period which greatly improved the lighting of downtown Algona and surrounding streets. The recent project was approved by the Board of Municipal Utilities last spring but it has taken all summer to get the new poles and fixtures. Members of the Utilities department are doing the work.
