Our Mission

According to Chapter 274 of the Avon Lake Codified Ordinances, the purposes of the Environmental Affairs Advisory Board shall include the following:

(a) To study and advise courses of action which the Environmental Committee of Council may take to formulate and promote general and broad codes of land, air and water pollution control for the City; and

(b) To study and investigate other environmentally related concerns and issues of importance to the Council and residents of the City and to report its findings and make appropriate recommendations to residents of the City and Council at the regularly scheduled meetings of the Board.

The Board shall seek, as its general goals, to create and foster a positive, responsible, cooperative and continuous effort between industry and residents of the City, to educate the Council and residents of the City on important environmental issues and to establish and make appropriate recommendations to Council for enforcement of land, air and water pollution control programs. The Board shall also investigate every reasonable means available to it to inform and educate its members relative to the problems and possible solutions of land, water and air pollution and control in small communities of similar size to the City. The Board shall meet on a quarterly basis or as requested by its Chairperson. Minutes of Board meetings shall be forwarded to the Mayor and members of Council.
