College Station is moving forward with its green efforts. Nine months ago the City hired Erin Harris, the first Sustainability Director. This position was funded by a grant saving the citizens of College Station the initial expense.
Today the Green College Station Advisory Committee was convened. I am proud to serve as that committee’s first chair person. The committee also draws heavily from the brain trust of Texas A&M. The first order of business for this committee is to develop an action plan whose goal it will be to save the city millions of dollars in operational costs over the coming years. The financial return on investment will be significant. The reductions in green house gasses and fossil fuel consumption will also be significant, making this effort good for us, good for the environment and good for national security.
Way to go College Station!
