Town hall turn-on

Post by brian livesey »

It isn't uncommon these days to see public buildings being unnecessarily floodlit at night. Early this afternoon, sitting in a cafe in the next nearest town, I happened to look through a window and noticed that the town hall's floodlighting and the street lights in front of the building were all switched on.
Ironically, local authorities like to remind us to save energy to keep the bills down and also for environmental reasons. A case of: "Do as we say, not as we do"?
