What is the City's the Green Team?
In April 2008, the City Manager formed a Green Team to assist in increasing sustainability within City government operations and to build a more sustainable community. There are 12 members from key departments on the team who function to help carry out the City's missions statement: "to provide for the common good and deliver services essential for a safe, sustainable, and engaged community.” Acting sustainable locally not only benefits the environment and planet, but also people's health and the economy.
