Tracking street light infrastructure

With a growing effort towards cost savings and infrastructure
improvement, Oak Brook has decided to look into improving all of their
street light utilities in the village. A private company has made a
proposal to swap some of the components within the street lights to more
energy and cost efficient materials. Rather than paying a lump sum to
the company for the improvements, they will pay the company over the
course of a few years the difference in cost savings they receive from
the energy efficient materials. This provides no immediate difference in
cost to the village, and when the cost of the upgrade is fully paid off
in a few years, the village will see a decrease in the money spent on
powering streetlights.

In order for the company to come in and perform the upgrade, they
need to know some basic things about the street lights such as: bulb
type, wattage, voltage, and location. As a result, a series of maps was
requested displaying all street light locations in the village, along
with a spreadsheet containing attribution for each light. The image
provided with this article is an example page of the map book that was
given to the company for use while performing the upgrade.
