Darkness in Bayview

Just an announcement concerning the streetlights:

Pledge $$ for Streetlights

Individuals, businesses or organizations can pledge a donation to maintain streetlights in Bayview. 
If you want streetlights at the major intersections of town, please pledge your financial support with donations made directly to the Chamber or encourage other organizations to sponsor one or more lights.  Without your support these lights will be gone.

Kootenai Electric has agreed to temporarily disconnect the seven (7) streetlights in Bayview that are paid for by the Bayview Chamber of Commerce, and leave the fixtures in place while we attempt to secure funding. 

These streetlights will be turned off within the next month until adequate funding is obtained, or until this fall.  We must obtain a reliable annual funding source of about $1500 per year ($215/light/year) to maintain these streetlights.  The Chamber presently depends on donations to pay for these lights.  Current donations are not meeting the cost of this service.  Our hope is that enough community members will discover the value of streetlights and provide adequate funding to reconnect these lights and continue the service indefinitely.  Should funding not be received by Labor Day, it is the Chamber’s intent to leave them off and terminate all interest in these streetlights.

These lights are located:  1) Perimeter Rd at Spruce, 2) Perimeter Rd at Cape Horn Rd, 3) Main Ave at Pier Rd, 4) Pier Rd at Marietta Rd, 5) Pier Rd Near Lime Kiln Rd, 6) Main Ave at 6th St, 7) Main Ave at 5th St.

Your pledges and donations should be sent to:

Bayview Chamber of Commerce

Bayview, ID 83803
