The EAC beating the drums at City Council

(The latest in a series of posts relating to the environment, Bethlehem’s Climate Action Plan, and Bethlehem’s Environmental Advisory Council)

You know Gadfly loves the Environmental Action Council (EAC). They just don’t talk about things, they do them, and do them.

Here’s EAC chair Lynn Rothman pitching to City Council August 20 the letter with environmentally focused design suggestions for the Polk Street Garage that she sent to the Bethlehem Parking Authority on July 29. Follow-up is good.

And Ann Gastlinger reminds Council on September 3 that we’ve got a “plastic crisis” and pushes for passage of the plastic bag ban ordinance the EAC, led by Beth Behrend, sent them weeks ago, so that it will be ready for implementation as soon as the legislative moratorium enacted by the State ends. Not letting them forget.

Your non-tax dollars at work by your “neighbors” pitching in and volunteering!
