    WHEREAS, the Village of Painted Post Board of Trustees desires to use Building Energy Benchmarking - a process of measuring a building’s energy use, tracking that use over time, and comparing performance to similar buildings - to promote the public health, safety, and welfare by making available good, actionable information on municipal building energy use to help identify opportunities to cut costs and reduce pollution in the Village of Painted Post; and
