The new and exciting Natural Resources Committee invites you to join us on November 20th at 4:00 pm In the Cooper Hall Board Room at the Rogers Memorial Library in Southampton (after the Suffolk County LWV post-election lunch, which we hope you will attend). At our initial meeting, suggested topics for study included:
  • Tree sequestering + what do the trees do for our environment? Should there be limits on what can be cut down? Should appropriate trees be made easily available? Should we be advocating a position?
  • Mylar balloons + how do they impact our environment? Should they be banned? Would there be a negative effect on some local businesses? Should we take a position on this issue?
  • The 20% of the CPF fund allocated to water improvement + how is it being used? What information do we want from the towns? Are we satisfied with what they are doing?
