Fund 21 was a fund for beach infrastructure as described in the warrant article and in this case lighting. Money was applied to priority streets and what remains is the residue of what was available to use. It sits there year after year as it is not enough to continue the effort. The recommendation of moving this money into the town unassigned fund balance is a good one as the money can be put to good use in another effort. There has been some discussion on additional efforts for beach lighting but no initiatives have surfaced. If and when that occurs the proposal will be studied .
