Environmental Committee

September 16, 2008

In attendance: Barbara Silzle, Ellen Lustgarten, Stephen Wagner, Craig Totaro. Bill Johnson and Mayor Jayne Young were in attendance during 1st agenda item.

  1. Trash/Recycling Policies for Homes and Apartments. The committee and Bill Johnson came to agreement on the outline of new trash and recycling policies that would include education and enforcement components. Those components would be developed after council has had an opportunity to weigh in on the recommendations. Changes would not be voted on or go into effect until the education and enforcement strategies are in place. The recommendations will be brought to council for discussion at the business meeting 10/1/08.
  2. Community Research & Advisory Group structure. The committee decided to establish an informal resource network of Lansdowne residents who will bring issues to, and do research for, the committee. The committee decided not to establish an EAC (Environmental Action Committee).
  3. The American Rivers/DEP storm water grant will be reintroduced at the next council meeting. The committee discussed options for funding the 2-year/$7500 a year match.
  4. Meetings going forward will be held on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm.

Next meeting: October 9th 7pm
