Bidding companies will have the option of bidding on three light fixture styles, and may also include the cost of LED lights as an alternative for the city.The Monroe Main Street Design Committee chose three similar lamp styles from different lighting companies in order to provide a larger number of competitive bids.Fehr-Graham estimates the cost will run about $312,000, including installation.The LED lights require less maintenance, but the savings in cost of electricity is not expected to be much, because the Square does not use much, according to Ryan Wilson of Fehr-Graham.
