Mayor's Saratoga Environment Project & Energy Committee

Mayor Valerie Keehn has created a committee, the Saratoga Environment Project & Energy Committee, to research and report to her concerning energy efficiency, alternative energy, and sustainability. This committee is chaired by Mark Torpey, who is associated with NYSERDA. This important committee created by Mayor Keehn is putting together a proposal, so we will be hearing more about it soon, and its important implications for the future of our city. Already, as a result of this initiative, the school board has agreed to obtain a biodiesel bus, as a first step in exploring ways the city can save money on energy.
