Vilnius District Municipality will be spending all the funds on the educational institutions, out of concern for the children high standard of living. The boilers at the educational institutions are undergoing renovation and modernization in order to reduce spending on heating and CO2 emission to atmosphere. There are coal boilers installed in the schools at present. The boiling rooms and the boilers are in very bad condition.
