    The new boilers to be installed at Morgan Elementary School during the upcoming renovation and construction project will be propane fired boilers, the North Harrison board of School Trustees decided recently at a special board meeting.
    The installation cost of the boilers is estimated at $1.9 million dollars, as opposed to the estimated cost of $1.79 million for electric boilers.
    The main difference in the costs involved will be in the yearly fuel consumption, and the cost of each type of fuel by the therm (a therm is a measurement of energy equal to 100,000 BTUs).
    The cost of propane per therm is $1.58, based on a cost of $1.45 per gallon of propane.
    With electric boilers, the cost per therm is $2.30, with the basis being a price of $0.0784 per kilowatt hour.
    The propane boilers would have an output of 26,710 therms per year, with 23,964 therms per year coming from electric boilers.
    The total energy cost on a yearly basis for the propane boilers would be $42,202 as opposed to $55,117 for electric.
    The propane boilers would have a service life of 25 years, as opposed to 15 years for the electric option.

S’burg’s annual spring clean-up starts April 20 PDF Print E-mail

    Spring clean-up in Scottsburg will begin Monday, April 20, according to a recent announcement by Jason Applegate, Superintendent of the city’s Streets and Sanitation Departments.
    City trucks will go over the entire community one time. They will start north on State Road 56 and travel east of U.S. Highway 31. Crews will then work their way north and back down the west side of U.S. 31 to the fairgrounds.
From there, they will go back up the east side of U.S. 31 to S.R. 56.
    Applegate noted that the process could take up to three weeks to complete, depending on weather conditions and the amount of trash being cleared out by Scottsburg residents.
    He cautioned that residents who place items out at curbside after crews have passed the residence will pay a pick-up charge for trucks to come back and get the items.
    Only household items will be allowed in this clean-up effort. Small items should be put in boxes or bags.
Items that will not be accepted include tires and remodeling or contractor materials as well as automotive parts or out-buildings. Refrigerators, freezers and air conditioners will not be picked up unless freon has been removed and a certified sticker is on the item.
    Applegate also said if outsiders bring trash to be picked up with city customers’ trash, the trash at that location will not be picked up, and the resident at that address could be subject to a citation.
