Goyette Mechanical is once again helping the city of Burton to orchestrate Project Heats On in 2020. The program selects 40-plus Burton area homes each year and provides much needed furnace cleaning, repair and even replacement free of charge for families in need.

This year the Project Heat’s On efforts will be altered from the past years due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. The annual organizational breakfast has been revised to providing box lunches for the volunteers. All COVID-19 safety measures will be in place including face masks for Technicians and proper social distancing will be practiced.

Applications are available at City Hall, 4303 S. Center Rd., or at the Burton Senior Citizens Center, 3410 S. Grand Traverse St. The application will also appear in the Genesee County View Newspaper. — G.G.
