A resolution’s been removed by the Mendocino County Board of Supervisors for a new Climate Action Advisory Committee. But it’s only so supervisors can improve language and redefine what the direction of the committee would be. The item to come back during budget hearings in June. Apparently members of the public at a meeting of supervisors, concerned about the bylaws, and funding, and wondering who was going to administer the committee. There is supposed to be members of the community to find solutions and policy changes for climate change that the county would then put into play. There’s supposed to be 15 members responsible for recommendations to the Supervisors for policy ideas and implementation of a Mendocino County Sustainability and Climate Action Program.
