DeKalb Citizens’ Environmental Commission plans public forum on LED lighting

DeKALB – The city of DeKalb Citizens’ Environmental Commission will hold a public forum at 6 p.m. Dec. 6 to discuss health and safety issues associated with LED lights which are replacing compact fluorescent lights and all other types of bulbs used in internal as well as external settings.

The guest speaker will be William Mills, assistant professor of engineering technology at Northern Illinois University, a lighting expert who has focused on the impact of lighting technologies for the past 16 years.

LED lights present economic and safety benefits as well as potential health and environmental risks. The forum will examine the complex issues regarding LED lighting while providing opportunities for public input, comments and questions.

The forum will be held in the City Council Chambers on the second floor of the DeKalb Municipal Building, 200 S. Fourth St.
