WHEREAS, it is in the public interest to adopt a sustainable buildings policy for buildings owned and occupied by the Borough in order to demonstrate the Borough’s commitment to enhance the region’s environmental resources, and to yield cost savings to the taxpayers through reduced operating costs.
