Municipal Lunch & Learn Takes Collaborative Approach to Natural Resource Management
(Pike County, PA)—Pike County Conservation District (PCCD) hosted a Lunch and Learn workshop for municipalities on May 23 at the Pike County Training Center. Staff highlighted District services that benefit local townships and boroughs.
Representatives from nine of Pike County’s 13 municipalities attended. PCCD Executive Director Michele Long provided an overview of the District’s mission and core programs such as Erosion Control and Waterways permitting and the Dirt, Gravel and Low Volume Road Program that funds repairs on local roads to improve stormwater management; Senior Resource Conservationist Ellen Enslin outlined the types of permit-related correspondence that is shared with municipalities; and Administrative Manager Chris Ingulli discussed inspection reports.
Planning Director Mike Mrozinski spoke about the county’s Solid Waste and Recycling Survey currently being conducted. The online survey can be accessed at PikePa.org.
