City councillor proposes more holiday lighting for future winter season

A Vernon city councillor is hoping to ramp up the holiday spirit in the future with more Christmas lights along the highway.

Councillor Scott Anderson is ready to bring forward a notice of motion in two weeks time to see more decorative lighting added to streetlights along Highway 97.

Currently, a stretch of street lights are adorned with festive red strip lighting, but Anderson suggested the city “do those up a little bit.”

As added lights would cost more, chief administrative officer Will Pearce noted a bigger light show would be a service level increase to be considered in the 2022 budget.
