[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Mamaroneck 2-4-2015 by L.L. No. 3-2015. Amendments noted where applicable.]
There shall be a Sustainability Collaborative in the Town of Mamaroneck. It shall serve as an advisor to the Town Board and to such other authorities, boards, departments, committees, commissions and employees of the Town as the Town Board may authorize from time to time. The Sustainability Collaborative's role is strictly advisory. It cannot bind or commit the Town or any of its authorities, boards, departments, committees, commissions and employees to any contracts, or to undertake, or refrain from taking any action.
The goals of the Sustainability Collaborative are to make recommendations for:
Maintaining and improving the quality of life in the Town;
Developing programs and protocols designed to prepare, mitigate and/or respond to and from the aftermath of natural or other disasters;
Preserving the Town's natural resources;
Wherever possible and cost efficient, continuing to deliver the same types and levels of services to the community (or adding to or improving such services or the delivery thereof) in ways that reduce pollution, conserve or reduce the consumption of energy or make the use of Town resources more efficient;
Improving the Town's resiliency in combatting shortage of supplies and power if such shortages arise, and
Improving the Town's long term ability to provide basic needs such as fuel, power, food and water to the community.
The Sustainability Collaborative shall report its activities and make its recommendations to the Town Board in September of each year and at other times either upon request of the Town Board or on its own initiative.
