City of Wilmington will spend $50,000 or more to light Kenan Fountain

Monday, November 18th, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (StarNews) — The Wilmington City Council directed staff members Monday to hire Musco Lighting of Iowa to change the lighting around the Kenan Memorial Fountain.

The company will charge between $50,000 and $60,000 to upgrade the lighting. For months, the city has been exploring hiring a firm to better illuminate the iconic fountain at Market Street and Fifth Avenue to protect it from being struck by cars.

In October, council members gathered at the fountain as Musco Lighting demonstrated how it would change the lights. The demonstration cost $5,000, but the fee will be knocked off Musco's final price, according to the city. The city also paid $500 for another lighting company's demonstration.
