Green BOE moves forward on energy savings
GREEN — During a special meeting June 9, the Green Local Schools Board of Education approved a resolution for the issuance of bonds, in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed $1.7 million, for the purpose of paying costs of installation, modifications and remodeling of school buildings to conserve energy.
During the April board meeting, district officials explained the program, which involves a number of changes to lighting and mechanical systems in several buildings, could save the district about $2.3 million in energy costs over a 15-year period. The program, totally funded through House Bill 264, which was approved in 1985, is administered through the Ohio School Facilities Commission and uses projected energy savings to fund capital improvements on energy conservation measures, according to district officials.
At its May meeting, the board authorized a contract with CCG Energy Solutions to participate in the school energy conservation financing program.
Also during the special June 9 meeting, the board approved a resolution authorizing records retention and disposal as presented by the treasurer.
The next regular meeting is scheduled for June 30 at 6:30 p.m. in Council Chambers of the Central Administration Building, 1755 Town Park Blvd.
