Robert Bing, Environmental Commission Liaison. presented an update to the Mayor and Council. Bing noted that it was first update to the Council since he was appointed the Liaison.  He noted that the committee has continued to meet, on a monthly basis, during the COVID-19 crisis, albeit in a streamlined manner.

“The approach we have taken is to manage this through a steering committee, which is a smaller group of individuals that is determining the direction,” Bing stated.  “As we determine what acts we would like to accomplish they will then bring in other to participate and help there.”

Bing praised the Commission members, most who have been there longer than he has, before, listing the accomplishments of the year so far.

Next steps the Commission is working on include addition recycling cans for not only the Boulevard, but other high-traffic areas in town, including the athletic fields; schedule a “Town Clean-up Day”, publish a calendar of events to help publicize the commissions efforts and to get more people involved, and a shredding day, which was re-scheduled for September.  

He added that there are a number of ideas that come up in the meetings that require the support of the Mayor and the Council. Going forward, Bing stated that they would be developing formal proposals, with pros/cons and any associated costs with the project.  The proposals could then be presented to the Council for review and approval
