At Wednesday’s council meeting Drouin ward councillor Tricia Jones successfully moved that a report into the findings of the trials be presented to the council and the Environment Voice advisory committee be asked to provide information on new developments in public solar lighting.
“The Baw Baw shire has long been trialling the alternative lighting and I don’t remember ever having a report come back to us with the trial outcome,” Cr Jones told councillors.
“It will be a good chance to find out what the findings were.”
In the context of recent developments, Warragul ward councillor Mikaela Power mentioned new glow in the dark footpaths had been installed by Gosford City Council in New South Wales.
