The mission of the Environmental Policy Task Force is to help the City of Salisbury develop policies to guide its actions, both internally and externally, as they relate to the environment. In addition, the Task Force will develop recommendations that the private sector may want to consider as well as a means to educate the citizens of the City. The goal of the City is to ensure that it will make decisions in an informed manner to minimize impacts on the environment.
The membership of the Task Force has been drawn from a broad base of interests and backgrounds to facilitate discussion and to insure that the results of the Task Force comprehensively cover the topic.
The Task Force has been appointed by the Mayor to help her develop a policy recommendation for consideration by the City Council. We anticipate that it will take the Task Force approximately six months to complete its task.
