The Environmental Sustainability Committee (formerly known as the Environmental Advisory Committee) studies environmental issues and makes recommendations to the City Commission on their implementation. Committee members volunteer their time to carry out recommended projects. This committee generally meets on the third Thursday of the month, 7:00 p.m. at the Library. The ESC has done work in, among other things, solid waste (recycling and expansion of yard waste), energy conservation (promoting energy audits, workshops on easy ways to save energy and money), sustainability, expansion of safe biking (recommended to the Commission to paint Sharows on city streets well known as bike routes), water conservation (bi-annual rain barrel sales). They look to expand into other environmental issues such as promoting NO IDLING within the city. They are always open to new ideas and directions.
