Friday night lights will be a lot brighter at four Hall County high school football stadiums this fall. The $696,000 project funded by special purpose local option sales taxes averaged $190,000 per school, with East Hall High School’s deteriorating light pole replacement costing more than the others, said Hall County Schools Director of Facilities Damon Gibbs. That money increased the light levels, and brought all four fields up to Georgia High School Association requirements, according to Gibbs and the lighting manufacturer.
