By issuing Green Apple Bonds, Liu hopes to rid city schools of the hazardous light fixtures by 2015, six years ahead of the city’s current schedule and at savings of $339 million. The Brooklyn Eagle reports the story.
Liu's plan has been applauded by the New York Lawyers for the Public Interest, the Environmental Protection Agency, parents and representatives.
These schools include: P.S. 8 in Brooklyn Heights; P.S. 9 in Prospect Heights; P.S. 15 in Red Hook; Arts & Letters in Fort Greene; P.S. 29 in Cobble Hill; I.S. 98 Bay Academy in Bay Ridge; M.S. 51 in Park Slope; Brooklyn Secondary School for Collaborative Studies; Khalil Gibran International Academy and hundreds more.
