Jacob Hurla from 360 Energy Engineers spoke with the Board about the results of a building/utilities study he did for energy efficiency and modernization of the Courthouse. Mr. Hurla explained that the money the County spends on utilities is not enough to offset any upgrades for energy efficiency; with a fairly new boiler and new windows, the Courthouse is in good shape as far as energy efficiency. The only needs found were in the form of modernization of the facility’s lighting and duct work for better heating/cooling. The Board agreed that the building has been and will continue to serve Burt County as the Courthouse and maintenance/modernization is a consideration that needs explored. 360
