Energy Efficiency Project - New Street Lights

On June 11, 2013, the City Council approved a $1.694 million dollar energy savings project which included a $423,000 grant from the Department of Commerce and approximately $192,000 in energy rebates. 

The project has a number of different components including: (1) retrofitting over 1,500 street lights to high efficiency pole light fixtures with Silicon based 20-year photocells, (2) replacing or updating HVAC systems at Borst Park and improving the ballfield irrigation system, (3) replacing HVAC equipment at the Train Depot and replacing the old lighting.

There are a number of financial benefits to the project including saving the City monies in the future but there are also non-financial benefits for the project that includes:  

(1) Street light inventory is completed (number, light head sizes, and location)
(2) The street lights will have little to no maintenance for over a 10-year timeframe
(3) Safety enhancement with new LED lighting (YES, the light is white)
(4) Less manpower on street lights which means they can focus on power pole replacement
(5) Improved lighting (safety) at the Train Depot

The new street lights will only be installed within the Centralia City limits.  Street lights will be installed based on zones.  To see a map of the different zones, please CLICK HERE.

EXPECT YOUR FLOOD INSURANCE RATES TO INCREASE....FEMA Presentation made at the January 16, 2014 Chehalis River Basin Flood Authority Meeting

The U.S. Congress passed the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012 in July 2012, which calls on the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and other agencies, to make a number of changes to the way the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is run.  The legislation will require the NFIP to raise rates to reflect true flood risk, make the program more financially stable, and change how Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) updates impact policyholders. The changes will mean premium rate increases for some—but not all—policyholders over time.
