The town government's sustainability initiative

From the Herald's Josh Morgan:

Town Manager Michael Milone has said a sustainability initiative is needed around Cheshire’s buildings that will encourage employees to recycle more cans and bottles, but as Milone explained, there are other things that can be done to benefit the environment. “We are trying to be more environmentally conscious,” Milone explained. “Just simply recycling is not the be all and end all.”

I commend the Town Manager for taking action within town government.

I'm looking for increased recycling at the household level via the next trash hauling contract.

So was the W/S mall part of the Milone, "Green Initiative". Replacing trees with 37 acres of impervious surface.

Good thing he brought in a high priced shopping mall planner instead of someone who could appreciate the benefits and value of open spaces.

Give us a break. Now he wants artificial turf.
