Shelbina City Council, Mayor and Administorators Discuss City Improvement Project

The Shelbina City Council had more discussion on the possible city improvement project during the regular meeting on Tuesday night at the Shelbina City Hall.
   City Improvement
   Shelbina City Superintendent Dennis Klusmeyer passed out some sheets to council members with savings estimates and other information on it. The numbers he showed the council were quotes from vendors, but they were telephone conversation quotes (rough estimates).
   Klusmeyer said the estimated costs were very similar to what Schneider Electric had come up with.
   He said if they wanted to do a street light replacement project, the replacement of all street lights except downtown ornamentals with LED’s would be an estimated $48,000. The recovery costs is going to fall around 60 percent for energy savings. Once the entire system is converted over to LED, the capital recovery time would be approximately 28 months. He said that would be the fastest return on investment. Klusmeyer noted that the street lights would be reducing kilowatt per hour sales through the electric department. The offset of that is that they are increasing operating capital in the street department because it pays for the cost of the street lights.
   The meter replacement would have a capital recovery of 2 percent, very close to what Schneider Electric had. That is for electric, water and gas.
   That would be a capital recovery, if done in-house, of about $440,000 for 44 months.
   Klusmeyer said it looks as though all the loads are down about 10 percent. If that holds true going into next year’s budget, that could really help. “What I’m finding with the numbers I’ve got is that they are very similar with what Schneider (Electric) estimated. Everything is matching up fairly well and the return on investment is there, should we decide to do something,” Klusmeyer said.
   He also gave an estimated total meter replacement cost of $143,336. It would be $191,660 for ERT modules. Everything could be set in the system for $334,996, according to Klusmeyer. He noted that this is a rough quote from Midwest Meter Co., the same company Schneider was working with.
   He said the facility lighting savings was less than the rest. He came up with a total annual savings of $7,013.79, which was very close to Schneider’s estimates as well. The capital recovery for that would be 8.5 years. He hasn’t gotten into looking at the Wastewater Facility part of the project yet.
   The council, mayor and administrators will continue to research numbers and plan to come back with more discussion on this matter during the first meeting in April on April 12.
