How much can Everett reduce its carbon footprint in 15 years?

How big is Everett’s carbon footprint? What can the city do to reduce its carbon emissions by 2030? Those are two of several questions the Everett City Council hopes to answer after unanimously voting to spend up to $30,000.00 with New Energy Cities, a non-profit group based in Seattle that helps communities to set and attain what they call quantifiable carbon reduction targets for buildings, transportation, waste management, and carbon storage.

While working on the 2016 budget last year the Everett City Council set aside $75,000.00 from a little-used fund to begin updating its climate-change action plan. Council member Paul Roberts has taken the lead in setting up this contract, calling it a first step.

    So that additional $20 on my vehicle registration was necessary to fund new expenditures like this.
