Those in Cecilton are working to be more efficient.
Town administrator Brenda Cochran applied for a grant to perform upgrades through the Maryland Energy Administration. Last week, those who test buildings for energy efficiency did checks at the town hall. The town has applied for the energy grant for the town hall as well as the other town-owned properties, the maintenance shop and the annex, which houses Head Start.
"They are auditing the buildings and assessing the needs. If we are more energy efficient, we are saving the town money," said town clerk Kim Roland. In other business from the Town of Cecilton:
• Residents can help keep the Town of Cecilton running without making a big time commitment.
