City of Henderson receives bids for installation of new streetlights

HENDERSON, KY (WFIE) - The City of Henderson has received bids for the installation of new streetlights along 2nd Street.

Project Manager Dylan Ward tells 14NEWS Hazex Construction is asking $298,000 to install them.

AVP Inc. said it could do the work for more than $305,000.

There are 37 custom historic-looking street lights - each 15 feet tall - and they're going-in along 2nd Street downtown.

Both bids are higher than the city had budgeted.

Ward tells 14NEWS, they're going to come up with a recommendation and take it to the next commission meeting August 25.
