Putnam Commission Meets Tonight

Budget amendments and quarterly reports are among the items on the agenda as the Putnam County commission meets tonight. But commissioners will also be deciding whether or not they want to go forward with a program intended to make some county buildings more energy efficient. It would involve replacing and retro-fitting a number of light fixtures. And it would cost nearly a million dollars to achieve, although proponents say some of that cost may be covered by grants. They also estimate that the county would recover the cost in annual energy savings over the next thirteen years.
