The East Aurora Environmental Stewardship Advisory Committee was formed in August of 2019 by the Village Board with Mayor Mercurio appointing a cross-section of the community to work for the benefit of the environment and the community as a whole.

Our Mission Statement:

The East Aurora Environmental Stewardship Advisory Committee is a citizen advisory group comprised of students, residents, businesses and government representatives. Our mission is to act in good faith and integrity for the stewardship of our planet and all its inhabitants for today and for future generations. Through a thoughtful and respectful exchange of ideas, we will help educate residents and propose ideas and practices to Village leaders regarding sustainability and environmental matters to achieve zero waste and climate action.

The next phase of our Committee's work is to assess and recommend options in the areas of composting and recycling. Our Committee meets the first Thursday of the month at 6:15 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room of the Village Hall. We are very interested in your thoughts, concerns, expertise, any information you feel would be advantageous in making progress toward this current goal, as well as any ideas for research and development now and in the future. Please join us once meetings resume, and in the meantime may you and yours stay well.
