Woodward City Commissioners are set to take another step toward making the city a little greener during their regular meeting Monday evening.
Meeting as the Woodward Municipal Authority, the commissioners are scheduled to hear from Honeywell representatives regarding a city-wide energy assessment.
“It’s a really cool program,” Mayor Bill Fanning said, noting that Honeywell is proposing a number of projects to “help the city save energy.”
These projects include computerizing the heating and cooling systems in city buildings and updating the city’s water meters, which become ineffective with age, Fanning said.
“There’s a lot of (energy) waste and we’re trying to get rid of some of it,” he said.
Beyond saving energy, Fanning said the program could also “save the city enough money to pay for itself.”
In other business, commissioners Roscoe Hill and Michelle Williamson will each be sworn in for another two-year term. Following the swearing in ceremony, the commissioners are set to go through their annual selection process for mayor and mayor pro-tem.
Other agenda items before the commission include the monthly report from Accurate Environmental Services and a rezoning request to change a tract of land in the southeast corner of the city from R-1 (Single Family Dwelling) to A-3 (Residential Estates).
The Woodward City Commissioners will meet at 7 p.m. Monday in the Commission Room of City Hall.
