Making the DeWitt County Building more energy efficient is the goal of an investigation being done by the DeWitt County Board.
A firm is analyzing everything from lighting to heating and air condition in the County Building and according to Terry Ferguson with the County Board, they hope to have enough energy savings through some improvements to pay for the project.
The firm has done their analysis and Ferguson indicates they plan to present to the property committee in April. He explains they are trying to bring the 30-year old facility up to energy standards of a newer building.
Ferguson says this is just in the preliminary investigative stages and a number for the cost and savings has not been determined, though he does anticipate having that as soon as April.
