About the Council

Established in 1997 as the Environmental Advisory Committee and a subcommittee of the Board of Health, the EAC was renamed to the Environmental Advisory Council (EAC) and restructured into a stand-alone advisory council by the Board of Commissioners on March 10, 2008.

The Environmental Advisory Council serves as a clearinghouse for issues of any environmental nature. The EAC recommends plans and programs to the appropriate Township agencies for identification and resolution of environmental problems.

The EAC is also charged with the task of environmental education and awareness for the community. The EAC sees one of its major roles as "educator' to provide the citizens with useful information that will help to maintain and improve the environment in which we all live. The council also encourages voluntary programs through community participation.
