Indivisible Morris members have consistently listed the environment as a top priority. Now you have a chance to support local efforts to promote greater sustainability and climate protection. On Thursday, June 6, 2019, Indivisible Morris will hold a member meeting that will focus on environmental protection.

Morris City Manager, Blaine Hill, will explicate efforts made by the Morris community to be “nationally recognized as an innovation leader in energy, transportation, and waste reduction and recycling.” The City of Morris is one of five communities across the state that is participating in the Climate Smart Municipalities (CSM) program through the University of Minnesota. Morris is partnered with Saerbeck, Germany. A small, rural community like Morris, Saerbeck is a leader in renewable energy and energy efficiency and was the first winner of the prestigious European Energy Prize. The City of Morris, UMM, Stevens County, SCMC, the public school system, and area businesses are all involved in this effort which has been labeled the Morris Model. The discussion will include concrete steps citizens can take to support the initiative and positively impact the environment.

This is your opportunity to ask questions, seek clarification, and take action.

There will also be break-out groups on other topics, including follow-up with the hiring of the new Morris Area School Superintendent.

Thank you for taking action.

Your Indivisible Morris Team
