More than twenty people attended a ribbon cutting along with students from Sheridan Junior High School on Thursday, recognizing the new lighting additions to the pathway that connects Kendrick Park and the junior high.

The City Street Division resurfaced and ultimately paved the 650-foot pathway in the summer of 2010. This past summer, eleven low-profile/low-glare lights were installed by Northeastern Lights Electric Company.

The total lighting phase of the project cost $25,500. School District 2 contributed $2,000, Whitney Benefits gave another $2,000, and the TRAC committee provided $7,000. Remaining funds came from Optional One-Cent taxes.
