Energy, Environment and Natural Resources Commission
About the Commission

Established by the City Council on October 6, 2008, the Energy, Environment and Natural Resources Commission (EENR) replaced the City's Water and Wastewater Advisory Committee. 

The EENR Commission serves as an advisory commission to the City Council on environmental issues and helps identify specific resource conservation goals and environmental practices to reduce costs and support sustainability.
