Shall the Town of Hampton vote to raise and appropriate the sum of $100,000 for the purpose of installing new decorative street lighting at Hampton Beach on C, D, and F Streets and on Ashworth Avenue, including all engineering, design, procurement, shipping, delivery and installation costs, together with all related appurtenances and activities necessary or desirable to complete the purposes of this article, with the sum of $100,000 to come from the Unassigned Fund Balance. This will be a non-lapsing appropriation per RSA 32:7, VI and shall not lapse until the work is completed or by March 31, 2020, whichever is sooner? (Majority vote required)
NOTE: Decorative lighting was installed in 2009 on A and B Streets as well as part of Ashworth Avenue in accordance with plans in the possession of the Town. The underground conduit already is in place on all of Ashworth Avenue and all of the lettered streets with only wiring and above ground decorative lighting left to be installed. The new lighting that was installed has greatly improved visibility and safety on the streets where lighting was completed; the old commercial street lighting was disconnected and removed and utility billing for the commercial street lighting has been terminated for those streets.
