The committee has requested the commission to send a letter requesting EnviroSuite to send a monthly one-page report/overview. The committee also voted to recommend the mayor’s office assume the point of contact for EnviroSuite contract as his staff are handling the onsite duties. Both recommendations placed on the first June voting meeting.
