SUMMARY:

 

In August of 2014, City Council adopted Resolution No. 29-14 referring the matter of creating a Climate Change Task Force to the Environmental Advisory Board (EAB) for recommendation to the City Council.  In June of 2015, City Council voted to hold a workshop to receive recommendations from the EAB to establish a Climate Mitigation and Adaptation Task Force.  In December of 2015, City Council directed the Council Executive to work with the Chairperson of the EAB to organize the Climate Adaptation Task Force based on the recommendations sent to the City Council by the EAB. In September of 2016, the EAB held their monthly board meeting wherein individuals interested in participating on the Climate Mitigation and Adaptation Task Force took part in an informational meeting.  The City Council made its initial appointments on October 13, 2016.  The Climate Mitigation and Adaptation Task Force is sponsored by the City Council; therefore the members of the task force need to be appointed by the City Council. 

 

After the initial meeting of the Task Force on January 26, 2017, two members indicated a desire to be non-voting members.   In an effort to facilitate this request as well as adding to the expertise of the Task Force, the additional named individuals are brought for Council consideration.
