Allegan buys bridge lighting for $61,200

Greg Quintero, a sales representative with Philips, displays for Allegan City Council members an example of the lights they later approved for the 2nd Street Bridge. The demo was during the council's meeting Monday, June 23, meeting.

Following a technical glitch with the software that controls the lights' animation, he shows above how the software allows easy manipulation of the different lighting sequences and colors that can be programmed in.

The lights have been installed elsewhere to great effect. Quintero showed council members video of the lights installed on the 1.8-mile-long San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridge, viewable here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UyZbb...

He also showed video of a tree strung with the lights; on it, colors dance and an animated silhouette of a dancer moves. View it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B0-tc...

City council members approved (by a 5-1 vote) spending $61,200 on the lights, to be installed within two months.

It is the first money to be spent from the city's new sinking fund, approved by voters last November to improve the riverfront. (Video by Ryan Lewis)
