    all street lighting within the City of Harlan. We're currently replacing High Pressure Sodium lights with energy efficient LED lighting.

  • HMU installs and maintains
    City Christmas lights, ornaments and lighting.

  • HMU Meter Reader Watch Program
    Employees look for anything suspicious as they pass a residence. A build-up of newspapers or mail is a signal to notify authorities that there may be a problem.

  • Any HMU vehicle is a Safe Haven for anyone needing assistance
    Especially children. They are taught in the classroom that they can approach a parked HMU vehicle at any time for help.
