Date: Tuesday, March 5, 2019.
Venue: McLennan County Commissioners' Court Meeting, Commissioners' Courtroom, 1st Floor, West Wing, McLennan County Courthouse, 501 Washington Avenue, City of Waco, Texas.
Time: session starts at 9:00am. Presentation is midway through the agenda.
Attire: Professional attire is expected. Tank tops, shorts, hats, and bare feet are not allowed.
Following our success in helping to initiate the process of decarbonization by the City of Waco, Alan Northcutt was invited to speak on this subject at the County Commissioners' Court meeting. The PowerPoint presentation will be 15 minutes in length. Although it will be similar to his prior talks to the City of Waco, he has modified it to apply more directly to McLennan County. Since some agricultural space is present within the County limits, he will address land use briefly, including no-till farming, cover crops, and crop rotation.
Alan recognizes that 9:00am is a difficult time for our members and supporters to attend. Although this event does not have the urgency of our Sustainability Board interactions, a nice group of supporters would be a positive signal to the Commissioners and would be greatly appreciated. If the County should also begin to take small steps toward a clean, renewable economy now, this would be a fantastic occurrence.
