Energy work at City Hall also has a hand in a landscaping project set to start this year, Eggleston said. Tweaks in piping to accommodate the new boilers prompted plans to give the exterior a new look, he said. Shrubs that obscure windows will be removed, improving security, Eggleston said. Memorial trees planted on the property will be retained if possible, but could be replaced with more “appropriate” vegetation, he said.
A satellite dish on the southeast corner of the site, no longer needed, will be removed and the spot planted with grass. Plant work will be done has money allows, Eggleston said.
