ISHPEMING - The Ishpeming City Council will talk about plans to boost energy efficiency when it meets Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Ishpeming Senior Center.

On the agenda is a memorandum of understanding between the city and Honeywell, International to formulate a plan to help the city improve its energy efficiency throughout its buildings.

Goals of the agreement are to develop a facility and infrastructure improvement program, intended to evaluate mechanical and electrical system replacements; repair, modernize and maintain buildings; and improve financial savings by reducing utility costs.

According to information provided in the city's meeting packet, the memorandum of understanding would guide the city and the company in developing a feasibility report, which the city would use in deciding whether or not to have Honeywell implement the identified improvements.

The meeting is also scheduled to include a second reading of Payment in Lieu of Tax ordinance for the proposed Phelps Apartments.
