Environmental Advisory Council

In 1997, the Township Board of Commissioners established an Environmental Advisory Council (EAC) as a subcommittee of the Board of Health. The EAC, as it is called, serves a clearinghouse for issues of any environmental nature, recommends plans and programs for the identification and resolution of local environmental problems, and encourages voluntary environmental programs through community participation.
