On the Agenda: Energy-Saving Measures in Medford

A look at items on the agenda for Tuesday's city council meeting.

The Medford City Council will consider about $280,000 in proposed energy-saving measures during it's meeting Tuesday night.

Mayor Michael McGlynn has submitted a request to the council to move $170,000 from the city's real estate account to fund the projects, which will receive about two-thirds funding through incentive programs, according to the request.

The work would include weatherizing doors and windows at Medford High School, as well as ventilation work at the school, along with lighting at City Hall and the high school.

In all, the work will cost $282,000, but the city will only have to pay about $169,000, according to the request.

Also on the agenda is a request from McGlynn for an easement to create a narrow access way from Freedom Way to connect it to a planned residential development on Mystic Valley Parkway.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m. in Council Chambers at City Hall.

Just one correction, the work would not include "replacing" windows and doors, that would actually cost several million dollars. It includes "weatherizing" windows and doors, which includes caulking, replacing locking mechanisms to help them seal better, and weatherstripping.
