The Town of Golden has found a sponsor to partner with for the first (hopefully of many) solar-powered lights to be put on the Rotary Trail along the dyke.
Western Financial in Golden has contributed $5,000, just under half the cost, towards the first tower light, which has already been ordered.
The municipality has been looking into the possibility of lighting the pathway along the dyke, both for aesthetic and safety reasons.
This first tower, which is the same one being used in other communities such as Kelowna, will be a prototype to see how effective they are.
The light will arrive in the spring, at which time the operations department will determine where the optimal placement for the first tower will be.
