SUSTAINABILITY BOARD MEETING & VOTE JANUARY 17: Attendance CRITICAL
When: Thursday, January 17, 2019.
Time: Assemble 3:45pm outside conference room. Session begins at 4:00pm.
Where: 3rd Floor Conference Room, Waco City Hall, 300 Austin Ave., Waco 76701
Transportation: If ride needed, contact Alan Northcutt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dress: Please wear your green FOP/C T-shirt if possible, or other light green shirt (uniform appearance enhances the impression of cohesion).
Age: Everyone welcome, including our student supporters.
Agenda: The plan is to make revisions to the resolution for 100% Renewable Waco presented to the Board in December. Alan will plan to introduce our supporters by hand raising in unison. These will be discussed at the session. Sarah Brockhaus will speak about the legal aspects of the resolution. We hope to have time for one or more of our members give brief statements. Alan plans to give a summary of the reasons this resolution is vital near the end of discussion and before the vote.
Vote: It is impossible to predict the outcome of this vote. The science, cost estimates, logic and urgency are on our side. Although there is some opposition on the Board, we also have supporters. Sarah and Alan will do their best to speak on behalf of Go Renewable Waco, but the presence of our members and other supporters is critical. So please place this on your calendar now, invite others from the Waco area who are supporters of a green economy, and be present on the 17th.
In addition, this Board session will serve as our January meeting. If you would normally attend the meeting at Poppa Rollo's, please be present at City Hall. (No one will be required to speak if they do not wish to. There will be no cause for embarrassment)
Dinner: As before, dinner will be provided at a nearby restaurant after the session. The facility will offer vegetarian and vegan options to accommodate all members.
Petition: If you have not signed the online or hard copy, please do so immediately. Also, if you have friends who desire a livable biosphere, please ask them to sign. All signatories should be from the Waco area. The following is the link:

--place "waco city council" in the search bar
Also, the number of signatures on line appears to have grown several hundred since Feb 2018, and we will present this information in the session. Obviously, the more signatories the better.
