Cville Gets More National Props

This month's issue of Public Management magazine (trade journal of city-manager types -- c'mon, we know you read it from cover to cover each month) features a cover story on "Using Energy Efficiency to Create a More Sustainable Bottom Line", which highlights Charlottesville's efforts to make our municipal buildings, schools and local govt. operations more energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly. It's pretty impressive to read what Cville has been doing over the past few years in this regard, and much of the credit goes to City Manager Gary O'Connell (recently named to the Leadership Advisory Committee on Sustainability for the International City/County Management Association) and our tireless and brilliant Environmental Administrator, Kristel Riddervold. Congratulations to both on the well-deserved recognition.
