The Newton County, GA, commissioners agreed in principle last week to refinance the county’s administration building and install a new HVAC system at the Covington Branch of the county’s library system. This follows the commitment in mid-August to provide $750,000 in funding. It was unknown at that point how the money would be provided, however, according to The Rockdale Citizen.
The library was closed several days last month when the HVAC system failed entirely. Technicians got it working pending the installation of the new system.
Newton isn’t the only community getting a new HVAC system. After a three month delay, The Essex (IA) School District is moving forward with project to install a new system in the K-12 building, according to KMA News. Camblin Mechanical won the contract, which is worth more than $1.145 million.
