New Heating System Needed at North Panola

SARDIS – A technical analyst and engineer gave an update on the North Panola School District’s boiler system.

Technical analyst Henry Sanford and engineer Donny Thompson, both of the Mississippi Development Authority’s energy division, addressed the North Panola School District Board of Trustees.

"The problem with the boiler is that it’s older than most of us in this room," Sanford said. "For the future, we recommend it be replaced."

Sanford added that he didn’t have any savings figures on hand, but would by the next meeting in October.

He told board members the new boiler would operate more efficiently.
