Environmental Advisory Committee seeks more volunteers

PARSIPPANY — The Environmental Advisory Committee of Parsippany is seeking to fill several openings. This is a volunteer committee that meets once a month and is composed of nine members. The EAC discusses current issues that affect the township’s environmental quality. 

Previous projects they have been involved in include Troy Brook studies, initiating the low phosphate fertilizer ordinance, initiating the well-head protection ordinance, designating the township as a “Cool Cities” energy efficient partner, Watnong Gardens, Hurricane Irene study and the current Waterview Property development project. 

One of their goals for 2016 will be to increase their community outreach through educational programming. Their current role is to work with and advise the Township Council and the mayor regarding any environmental based topics.

Anyone applying should have a strong interest in the environmental quality of Parsippany, be available for monthly meetings and have some background (formal or informal) in environmental science.

In addition, email lmrosey@aol.com stating that an application has been sent.

This is an open committee in which any current Parsippany resident can serve. They welcome anyone who is interested in working towards a better tomorrow for the town and its residents. Feel free to send any questions or inquires to the lmrosey@aol.com.
