ALBANY — The Dougherty County School Board’s Building and Grounds Committee on Thursday voted unanimously to push four items for consideration to the full Board, and heard a presentation from Pepco Energy Services for a possible energy performance savings contract.
The committee, comprised of Milton “June Bug” Griffin, Darrel Ealum and Velvet Riggins, approved a $4,890 change order to renovation work at Dougherty High School; $17,960 for security storefronts at Albany Middle and Robert Cross Middle schools; $3,659 for 10 bus canopy benches at Dougherty International Education Middle School and $15,502 for 192 science stools for labs at Albany High and Dougherty High.
The Committee Also heard a presentation from Pepco Business Development Manager Steven Stovall and M360 National Sales director Sterling Miller in regard to instituting an energy savings program through out the school system that could reduce energy costs.
The two men urged the system to take advantage of interest-free loans available through the recently passed Energy Savings Contracting Act.
The companies would conduct a systemwide energy audit and make cost-saving recommendations through such measures as light replacement and HVAC assessments.
The Committee instructed System Executive Director for Finance and Operations to ask for an RFP (Request For Proposal) to further study its options.
