Bid approved for intersection lighting in Monticello

The main intersection that greets visitors as they enter Monticello will soon be much more visible at night.
Mayor Martha Watts reported to aldermen earlier this week at their monthly meeting that an estimate to bore under the highways to install the lights was less than it was when the project was first considered a couple of years ago. The estimate of $3,331 to install the lights was accepted by board members Tuesday night. The monthly cost of operating them will be $692.40.
