Mount Olive Township's Green Initiative

Mount Olive Township council meetings
MOUNT OLIVE TOWNSHIP, NEW JERSEY - Council President Ray Perkins in cooperation with Lisa Lashway, Township Clerk and Scott Gaskill, IT Director have completed the transition of paper copy to electronic format for Workshop and Public Meetings as a part of Mount Olive Township's Green Initiative.

Mount Olive Township residents now can access the complete Agenda, which lists all items in PDF for ease of viewing and printing if necessary. The information will be available after the close of business on the Friday prior to scheduled Council meetings.

“The residents just go to the website, click under Mayor & Council, then go to Township Council, then meeting date and click to open the Agendas.” said Ray Perkins, Council President, “This provides everyone with adequate time to read correspondence, Resolutions, Ordinances, bill list and minutes prior to coming to the Municipal Building for the meeting.”

Dates and times for the Mount Olive Township Council Meetings are available on the township's website. Residents are welcome and encouraged to attend.

“It also has the added advantage of permitting those who cannot attend Council meetings the opportunity to see what is taking place and contact us with questions or comments.” noted Perkins.

Council President Ray Perkins further explained that this effort was a direct result of Mayor David Scapicchio's endorsement of the US Mayors Climate Protection Agreement and the Green Initiative Resolution introduced by Councilman Phil Tobey last year.

“This new procedure will contribute not only to reducing our carbon footprint, savings in paper goods and printing cartridges, but also opens another access to government by the people we serve.” said Perkins.

About the US Mayors Climate Protection Agreement
For decades The U.S. Conference of Mayors has formally adopted and actively promoted policy positions on a range of issues affecting energy production and use and its impact on the environment.
