Fairbury Board Discusses Costly System Upgrades, Budget Cuts At Meeting

An energy savings company met with Fairbury Public Schools board members Monday night to provide a priority list of upgrades that will cost money – about $500,000 all together – but are expected to make the school buildings run more efficiently. 
Trane, the energy savings company, said that during a recent visit to Fairbury Public Schools, it was determined that there is negative air pressure in the building because more air is being exhausted from the building than being brought in. 
“It's the worst building I have seen in 35 years,” one of the Trane officials said.
