La Salle receives energy efficiency and USDA grants

Posted by wlpo on September 7, 2010

Updating your heating and air conditioning systems can save you money at home.  The same goes for the city and city hall.

La Salle will be updating the heating and cooling systems and lighting in hopes of cutting their electric bills by at least one tenth.  The upgrades are possible through an Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant.  They’re receiving $85,795 in federal money.  They’ll be receiving another $10,000 from the state.  The city expects to pay less than $19,000 for the work.

The La Salle Police Department will also be benefiting from a grant.  A USDA grant is helping them buy an equipped K-9 squad car.
