$1.2 million to fix COCC Redmond campus heating problems

COCC Redmond campus

Central Oregon Community College is spending more than $1 million to fix heating units on their Redmond campus. 

The school said eight units in the campus tech building failed, leaving an entire building of classrooms without heat.

The board of directors approved a budget of $1.2 million to replace the units. It will take a little more than five months for the equipment to arrive.

Only one classroom is being used this session. Space heaters will be used to keep students warm this winter.
