Mayor Roy Gold was reappointed to the National League of Cities’ (NLC) 2012 Energy, Environment and Natural Resources (EENR) Policy and Advocacy Steering Committee. Committee members set national municipal policy used in discussions with Congress and the Administration.
The EENR committee is responsible for developing policy recommendations on issues such as air quality, water quality, energy policy, national wetlands policy, noise control and solid and hazardous waste management. The committee is one of NLC’s seven standing committees developing policy positions and advocating on behalf of municipal governments.
As a member of the steering committee, Mayor Gold will help research and draft policy positions for review and adoption by the full advocacy committee. The steering committee is the beginning of the process for establishing NLC policy.
“Proudly serving on this committee affords Coral Springs a seat at the table with the most effective and influential elected officials in the country working on sustainability and environmental issues,” Gold said.
