BEST meeting minutes, request for next meeting
For the next meeting, please come with at least one suggestion for continued progress in reducing the County's carbon footprint, or addressing another suggestion pertaining to issues surrounding sustainability.
It is also important that we hear from each department about how the 4-10 schedule is going. It may feel like we've passed the summit with the new hours in place, but there's more creative, innovative work to be done. Creative because we are still on a micro-budget. Innovative because we are an unusual county that must accommodate a wide variety of activities, complete with wild weather and a population that just doesn't know when to come indoors (not a bad thing, really).
