Commissioners go green at the zoo
Hamiton County Commissioners will hold a press conference Tuesday to announce their participation in the national Cool Counties initiative and the adoption of the Environmental Stewardship Policy for Hamilton County.
They already signed resolutions about both policies but this conference gives them the opportunity to do it at the Cincinnati zoo and do it just prior to a Go Green Challenge networking luncheon. Very fitting.
The press conference is at 11:30 a.m. at the Harold C. Schott Education Center.
Under the Cool County initiative the county is committing to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2 percent annually.
Under the Environmental Stewardship Policy commissioners committed to thinking green in all decisions relating to county operations.
