Rehoboth Beach is seeking applicants to volunteer to serve on the new Environment Committee.

The committee was created to work to energize, inspire and lead the city to become an eco-friendly, conservation-focused destination. The committee will endeavor to take care of the natural environment and address the causes and impacts of climate change and environmental risks that pollute the ocean, lakes, beaches, canals and public land areas and endanger humans, marine and wildlife.

The committee will focus on accomplishing its mission through public awareness, education, incentives, recommending public policy and taking effective steps that will make Rehoboth Beach an environmentally friendly model for other coastal communities.

Mayor Paul Kuhns appointed Commissioners Richard Byrne and Lisa Schlosser as liaisons with the new committee.

Eligible members include property and business owners, residents and community stakeholders. The committee will meet on an as-needed basis at City Hall and all meetings are open to the public.

Interested individuals should apply to the City Secretary. Applications are available at cityofrehoboth.civicweb.net/portal and City Hall, 229 Rehoboth Ave.
