Statement on Biogas Project and Renewable*Connect
Reclaiming the biogas that we are currently burning off is a win all the way around. Any time we can reduce our emissions and end up with positive cash flow I am completely on board. I look forward to hearing the city manager’s report on Renewable*Connect, but it appears that the program will result in cost reductions for our city as well. Not only are these good ideas, they are exactly the kind of projects that we need to be looking closely at right now. We have a 77 million dollar capital improvements plan that we don’t have the money to pay for. If Englewood is going to have a strong future with sound infrastructure, we will need to find creative ways to reduce costs and increase our revenues.
