Canfield Township trustees approved a resolution at the Jan. 24 meeting that will enable Cardinal Joint Fire Station II to have better lighting.
Titan LED Lighting Solutions was approved to perform the installation of the new lights.
"This is a joint project between the township and the fire district," Chairman Brian Governor said.
He said the fire district purchased the equipment to make the change to the station's current lighting. The township will pay up to $1,850 to have the new system installed.
Governor said the station presently uses the common 4-foot fluorescent light fixtures and bulbs. The system uses ballasts to start the fluorescent tubes.
Under the new light emitting diodes system, the same old fixtures are used but the ballasts are replaced with a new control system. The bulbs are then replaced with the new LED energy-saving 4-foot bulbs, which Governor said has a longer life expectancy of more than 20 years.
Besides providing better lighting and having a longer replacement life, the new LED bulbs will make for a very significant reduction in electrical use.
On a different issue, trustees unanimously approved the hiring of Traci DeCapua as part-time zoning inspector, pending a background check.
Also on the agenda was the approval of a resolution approving an annexation agreement with the city of Canfield with regards to the petition for annexation files by Mala Properties Unlimited Aug. 22, 2016.
The resolution unanimously passed and was sent to Canfield City Council, which was expected to approve the agreement Wednesday. Details of the agreement were not released prior to that meeting, but it does involve a 22-acre section of land on Palmyra Road that abuts Red Gate Farm.
