Jupiter: Should taxpayers chip in to fix the lighthouse?

LITE

A donation from Jupiter to the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse of $17,000 — bringing the total this year to $22,000 — is scheduled for a vote at Tuesday’s 7 p.m. town council meeting.

The contributions would go toward about $150,000 in renovations being done on the lighthouse, first lit in 1860. The work includes painting, roof repairs, structural improvements and updates to the Fresnel lenses that refract light from the top of the 108-foot lighthouse.
