Barbara Fu Kumoto said "The Council approved funding for the permanent, part-time sustainability coordinator as part of the '08-'09 Budget! This means that staff plans to spend previously-acquired grant money on the community carbon audit or greenhouse gas inventory. This inventory will provide the data needed to set meaningful greenhouse gas reduction goals and a comprehensive climate protection plan to meet those goals. Council and staff have taken a significant step toward achieving their vision of a sustainable city and fulfilling the commitments made in the Mayors' Climate Protection Agreement." "This is great step taken by council, residents are proud of Mayor, Council, staff, caring for our planet earth" said Amarjit.
