(KSL News) -- Mayor Anderson's latest project may require some private buildings to be more environmentally friendly.
A few months ago, he signed an order requiring new and renovated city owned buildings to be certified by Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or "LEED."
Now, he wants to create an ordinance requiring private buildings to follow LEED rules, if the builders use any city funds for their projects.
The "LEED" certification could cost developers more in construction and compliance. But city officials say the energy-efficient structures will cost less in upkeep and maintenance fees.
