Our proposal includes two major elements. First, we will empower a team of volunteers to help our people implement water-saving strategies in our respective businesses and homes. For sure, we can all do better, and having someone who knows the tricks of the trade can help us each figure out how we can help.
The second part of the proposal is additional funding to add to the funding already available from Marin Water District ONLY for the people of Fairfax. Today, MWD provides grants and rebates for investing in things that save water in homes and businesses. Mostly, these grants and rebates do not pay 100% of the cost of these measures. So, our proposal will help people to pay for the remainder of the measures, thus making them even easier to adopt.
We will be having a Public Workshop during our regularly scheduled Climate Action Committee Meeting next week. During that meeting, we will describe the elements of the plan, answer questions about it, and hear comments on it. The Town Council wants to know; should we take this money from the Federal Government and use this small bit to help you, in this way.
Please join us next Tuesday, September 21, from 7-9.
Our meetings always end on time, and we welcome all people of our Town.
