School zones going green in League City
League City's latest effort to be environmentally friendly will be coming to its school zones.
Earlier this month, City Council approved spending $114,960 to buy 30 solar-powered school zone flashers, city spokeswoman Kristi Wyatt said. The city should receive the devices late this year or early next year.
Since most of League City's school zones don't have have flashing lights, the installation of the flashers should help curb speeding, Wyatt said.
The new flashers also fit City Council's goal of being more environmentally responsible, Wyatt said. Last year, the city purchased its first-ever hybrid vehicles as part of a goal for half of its fleet to have fuel-saving systems by the end of 2011.
This is another step in our conservation efforts," Wyatt said.
