Decatur to get New Lights for Playing Fields

The softball and baseball fields at Decatur’s McKoy and Oakhurst Parks will get new lighting systems, with construction expected to start Oct.1 and take about three months.  Deputy City Manager Hugh Saxon said the new lights  will be 15 percent more efficient and spread far less glare to surrounding neighborhoods.  The system will be installed by Daveco Electrical of Boynton Beach, Florida, which constructed lights for the Florida Marlins stadium and the Boston Red Sox spring training facility.  The current McKoy and Oakhurst lights are more than 50 years old.
