opportunity for improved efficiency with City
resources, including staff time, fuel, and truck
maintenance requirements.
Recommendation:
Purchase a “split-body”
collection truck at the end of a current truck’s life-

Convert Lighting in
All City Parking Decks
to Light-Emitting Diodes (LED)
Problem statement:
LED lighting presents an
opportunity for the City to improve operating
efficiency, through increased energy efficiency and
longer fixture life-cycles, and the potential for
improved parking deck customer experience through
brighter lighting.
Recommendation:
Phasing in of the LED lighting
changes provides the greatest savings and lowest net
present value total cost. Begin the changes in the
highest electricity-consuming deck to enhance the
initial savings potential and start the change out within
the next 2 to 3 years as capital is available.

Responsible” criterion, because of inadequate data to
develop specific costs for each strategy. These
qualitative metrics allowed the evaluation to proceed
using the following relative terms:
