Simpson SGA Allocates Funds to Make Simpson Safer

SIMPSON – The Simpson College Student Government Association allocated $15,000 to lighting fixtures to be installed around campus.

This proposal will fund the installment of 26 light fixtures across campus. This project is being funded by two groups: one-third of the project being funded by the Student Government Association, and two-thirds being funded by Simpson College. This proposal was officially approved by the SGA on Wednesday, January 25th and approved by the Board of Trustees on Friday, February 6th. The SGA is hopeful that the additional lights will make Simpson a safe, and more aesthetically appealing campus.

This is just the first phase in the project. This proposal is only funding lighting fixtures that were deemed high priority lighting areas. There are another $55,000.00 worth of low priority lighting areas that will be paid for over time from the school’s normal maintenance budget. Over the next few years students should expect to see improved lighting across campus.
