CAPE CORAL, Fla.- Cape leaders are turning down the thermostats to save thousands of dollars.

Every city building went from 72 degrees to 78 while workers are in the office. It will jump to 82 degrees when workers leave for the day.

Leaders expect to save up to $300,000 every year with the change.
