The Linn County Board of Supervisors appointed 14 Linn County residents to serve on the newly established Linn County Sustainability & Resiliency Advisory Committee.
The Advisory Committee will help complete an annual greenhouse gas inventory for Linn County with support from the Linn County Office of Sustainability and the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives. The greenhouse gas inventory will help Linn County review and monitor progress toward the goals and objectives of Linn County’s climate resolutions.
The Advisory Committee is comprised of 14 diverse, sustainability-interested individuals with one-third membership from business and industry, one-third from vulnerable communities, and one-third from rural communities. Members serve one-year terms with the opportunity to serve an additional two terms for a total of three. Appointments are voluntary.
The committee will meet the second Friday of each month at noon at the Jean Oxley Linn County Public Service Center, 935 2nd St. SW, Cedar Rapids. The meetings are open to the public. Subscribe to receive meeting notices at www.LinnCountyIowa.gov/NotifyMe.
