Planning for a Warm Future: Replacing the Heating System

The church Board recommends action

Our heating system at UCiM needs attention. After careful review of the report from the Heating and Cooling Task Group, the Board is of the opinion that it is time to recommend action.

Replacing the system is going to cost money but it could also help us lower our carbon footprint and better prepare for global warming.
