To the editor:
My name is Thomas White, I’m an eighth-grader and I’m writing to you concerning energy conservation. My main concern is the new parking ramp that is next to the outdoor public pool. The lights are on 24/7 and no matter what weather, or time of day, you will always be able to read a book under those lights. I believe that they should be toned down a bit and not on as long. The city could save money, reduce light pollution and save energy.
Also, I would like to congratulate the city on their excellent Christmas light display, and appreciate their use of extremely energy efficient LED lights. I have always loved this time of year and believe that they did a great job this year.
