Columbus launches energy task force

Monday, October 06, 2008

From an article by Paul Schraf in the Daily Citizen (Beaver Dam):

COLUMBUS - The Greater Columbus Energy Task Force held its first meeting Tuesday night with its goals laid out clearly.

"We are leaders in promoting energy sustainability and conservation," Mayor Nancy Osterhaus told the group.

The meeting consisted mostly of the task force looking at a list of recommendations made by city economic development/energy sustainability director Steve Sobiek.

The biggest project considered Tuesday night was converting all street lights in the city to light-emitting diode bulbs.

"I think that's really the wave of the future," Sobiek said. "Columbus is leading the way."
