Cornwall - Mar. 18, 2011 - Mayor Bob Kilger is encouraging local residents and businesses alike to join him in participating in Earth Hour on March 26, at 8:30 p.m.

Earth Hour is a global movement working to call attention to climate change, energy consumption, and sustainability. On Earth Hour, hundreds of millions of people, along with businesses and organizations, around the world will focus on this issue by turning off their lights for an hour. Famous landmarks around the globe also will turn off their lights.

"By participating in Earth Hour, we show that we can all be part of the solution to help reduce our impact on the environment," said Mayor Bob Kilger in a media release. "At the city, we have been taking consistent steps to reduce our impact on the environment and save taxpayer dollars. Earth Hour supports our philosophy of environmental stewardship. Together the city and the residents can work together to make an impact."

This year, the city will be taking a number of steps to meet Earth Hour’s objectives.

All non-essential lighting and computer equipment in city buildings will be turned off by city employees as they leave work on Friday afternoon. Also, lighting in working city facilities, such as recreation and municipal work facilities, will be minimized as much as possible during Earth Hour itself while keeping public safety as a first priority.

The floodlights on the clock tower in Lamoureux Park will also be turned off during Earth Hour.
