Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

Emery County Commissioner Randy Johnson was recently named a member of the National Association of Counties' Environment, Energy and Land Use Steering Committee by NACo President, Javier Gonzales.

NACo's 11 steering committees form the policy-making arm of the association. Each committee is comprised of approximately 60-100 county officials who meet several times during the year to examine issues critical to local government.

The Environment, Energy and Land Use Steering Committee focuses on air, water, and noise pollution control; solid and hazardous waste management and disposal; the preservation and proper utilization of water resources; energy; and the use of land resources, including comprehensive planning, coastal zone management, growth management, energy facilities sitting and recreation.

The steering committee's recommendations on legislative policies and goals are presented to NACo's membership during the association's annual conference. If approved, the recommendations become part of the American County Platform, which is the basis of NACo's efforts in representing counties before Congress and the White House.
