Oswego Committees & Commissions


Purpose

The purpose of the ECO Commission is to protect and improve our environment for you and for future generations. We are volunteer stewards for the environment.

We seek to:

  • Gain input about the environment from our neighbors and community leaders
  • Provide good information on the environment
  • Involve Oswego leaders in key issues and opportunities
  • Increase recycling and reuse through hands-on activities
  • Offer ideas on how to improve ordinances and contracts that impact the environment.

Strategy

ECO’s strategy is to:

  • Get people outside to enjoy green spaces, the river and the Oswego environment.
  • Further shrink Oswego’s carbon footprint by choosing green energy and green alternatives.
  • Minimize solid waste that goes into landfills, by recycling, composting and reuse.
  • Secure long-term sources of drinking water for Oswego.
  • Increase the value of the Fox River as a recreational and environmental resource.
  • Maximize local organic food so healthy food is close at hand.
