Elementary School Students to Do Energy Audit of City Hall

(Monday, November 26/2001)-- Eleven students from grade five and six classes at Holland Road Elementary School have been chosen to conduct an energy audit of Halifax Regional Municipality's City Hall this Thursday (November 29th).

The students are divided into four teams and will carry out energy, waste and water audits of the City Hall. Deputy Mayor Robert Harvey, other members of Council and HRM staff will assist and participate. Municipal employees will also be interviewed about conservation practices.
