A big-ticket item was approved this week by members of the Three Rivers Public Library Board.
In advance of the library’s move to 88 N. Main St., the board agreed to spend nearly $120,000 to replace the building’s heating and air conditioning unit.
With no heat emitting from the current system, the board expects to pay about $4,800 a month through winter in order to maintain heat and keep the building’s water pipes from bursting.
Money to cover the new system will come from fund balance and contingency funds, board members said.
Athens-based Manchester Heating and Cooling is expected to install the new system.
