|Priority Based Budget Key Community Priorities and Objectives
|High Preforming Governance:
- Deliver quality community assets – This project will invest in the maintenance and renewal of a community asset to keep it functioning as intended and provide a quality experience to users of the facility.
- Enhance the organizations fiscal stability & increase efficiency & effectiveness - This project will increase the efficiency and reduce operating costs of the building.
Carbon Neutrality Plan
Carbon Neutrality Strategies List: FS-1 Reduce or remove natural gas usage in municipal buildings - The new high efficiency boilers are over 95% efficient and will significantly reduce the natural gas consumption of the building. Electrification was explored as an option for replacement however it was determined that expensive electrical upgrades to the building were required, a comparable electric boiler was significantly more expensive than gas, the solar panels at the facility are not enough to offset the buildings existing electrical usage before increasing the load with an electric boiler and the grid power required to run the comparable electric boilers would cost the city approximately 3 times as much as natural gas.
Chapter VII Energy:
Goal E.I. Increase Energy Efficiency - The high efficiency boilers installed in this project will increase the energy efficiency of the building.
