Webster City Council Members and City Staff are participating in the third annual citywide Warm Hearts, Warm Homes event on November 3. This weatherization project is a community partnership of teams of businesses and individuals, who will weatherize homes of persons who are unable to caulk windows, apply weather-stripping and window plastic, install door stops or do other insulation projects to ready their home for the winter.
An assessment of homes will be done in advance which will determine what insulation materials are needed and will make final decisions on eligibility.
Black Hills Energy and the City Municipal Electrical Utility are promoting educational efforts to assist home owners in lowering home energy use in order to save money on winter heating costs.
The organizing committee consists of Black Hills Energy, the City of Webster City, the PRIDE in Webster City team, Ministerial Association, Hamilton County Supervisors, OHP Marketing, UDMO and the Webster City Chamber of Commerce.
Home owners who might need this free service and those wishing to volunteer for the project can contact Justin Jones at Black Hills Energy at (641) 580-0330 for additional information.
