Second Saturdays workshop set
Fairfield Sustainability Coordinator Scott Timm will conduct a hands-on introduction to weatherization basics from 1-3 p.m. Saturday at Fairfield Public Library.
Homeowners and renters can make adjustments to their living space and live more comfortably in the winter, while saving on their utility bill.
The workshop also serves as training for volunteers weatherizing homes of 20 U.S. military veterans.
The Second Saturdays workshop series is a partnership between the city, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, Alliant Energy and Fairfield Public Library to provide information about how residents can change their behaviors to save energy and money, conserve resources and reduce their carbon footprint. The series continues through December.
If the community meets the program goals, Alliant will help fund the installation of solar panels on the library.
