Sustainability committee begins green education
Janesville's new sustainability committee is focusing on education.
Chairwoman Nancy Sonntag says the next meeting will be a presentation and discussion about what projects have been done in the City of Janesville. Sonntag says she also hopes to get someone from the City of Beloit to speak with the committee at the next meeting because in a number of ways they're farther ahead than Janesville is. The committee also plans to survey Janesville citizens, asking if they want to continue having the fees from other communities that use Janesville's landfill, or if it's more important that the city landfill last longer and Janesville citizens start paying fees. Sonntag says she welcomes ideas from the public for the committee.
The committee held its first meeting, and brainstormed ideas, this week.
