|Mayo travels to California for solar forum|
Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo will travel to San Jose, Calif. this week to represent the city of Monroe at the 2009 Solar America Forum.
The event will be held from Sept. 23-24.
The event is being held to discuss efforts by cities across the United States to become more energy efficient.
Mayo was invited to attend the event, which will feature a roundtable forum with several other mayors. Mayo said he will highlight some of Monroe's successful green efforts during the roundtable forum.
The forum will also include Mayor Julian Castro (San Antonio, Texas), Mayor Matthew Godfrey (Odgen, Utah) and Mayor Peter Drekmeier (Palo Alto, Calif.).
Some of Monroe's "green" efforts include energy conservation, the Green Teens; cigarette litter prevention; a new garbage-trash ordinance; and, the city's award-winning environmentally friendly Monroe Transit System (which features a hybrid electric/bio-diesel bus and a bio-diesel bus fleet).
"It is an honor to have been invited to participate in a roundtable mayor's discussion and represent the city of Monroe," Mayo said. "The city council and I are extremely excited that our efforts concerning the environment are being recognized nationwide."
"When it comes to best practices, having an opportunity to share with and learn from other municipal and industry leaders is extremely beneficial," Mayo continued. "It only takes one great idea to find a way to conserve energy, preserve our environment or make better use of our resources in order to save taxpayer dollars."
The Solar America 2009 Forum brings together city leaders, industry and non-profit organizations to discuss green efforts and present solutions that can create jobs and economic prosperity.
