VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

The City of Valdosta is asking for your input on energy conservation.

There's two surveys one on goals to save energy and the second one is your thoughts on the planning phase and projects already using energy saving measures.

Some of those changes are the timing at traffic lights in a high accident prone areas that allows traffic to move more smoothly and efficiently.

They've also had energy audits on municipal buildings at no cost from Georgia Power and added motion detector light sensors through a community block grant that's also paying for the surveys.

"It's not only important as a local government to take steps to conserve energy because we see energy prices going up but we need to protect our natural resources and our environment and we want to encourage our citizens to do the same," said Mara Register, the assistant to the city manager. "This helps heighten that awareness."

The last day to submit the surveys is Friday.
