February 6 Metro Council Meeting

The Metro Council held its first meeting of February last night. A summary of the meeting is below:

Golf - a resolution was passed approving contracts regarding the operation of six of the ten metro-owned golf courses: Iroquois, Long Run, Seneca, Shawnee, Sun Valley, and Charlie Vettiner. Bobby Nichols, Cherokee, and Crescent Hill do not have an approved contract in place, though they are still scheduled to open this spring. Quail Chase is already operating under an existing contract.

Clean Energy - a resolution was passed calling for (1) 100% clean renewable electricity for metro government operations by 2030, (2) 100% clean energy for metro government operations by 2035, and (3) 100% clean energy community-wide by 2040. I support having metro government's goals come first as we should not ask the community to invest in something we will not. While non-binding, I believe this resolution is an important step as we seek to lessen our impact on the environment. I was proud to vote yes and look forward to the tangible steps we take in the years to come.
