CALEXICO — Construction workers installed 18 new light structures at Las Casitas Park on Friday.
The new lights will allow residents living near the park to play soccer at night and keep better watch over their neighborhood.
Councilman Javier Alatorre said he was happy to see public and private sectors come together to help the community.
Installation of the light structures was made possible by a joint effort of the City Council, the city's Police Commission, the Imperial Irrigation District and IRBY Construction of Brawley.
Alatorre recently put an item on the City Council's agenda asking his peers to allocate $19,000 for new lights to fulfill a promise that council members made to Calexicans living near Las Casitas Park, a retention basin park on the northwest side of town.
