Going Green/Rebates for Stormwater Management
In case you haven't heard the County's new Rain Check Rebate program website is up with a lot of good information.
Rebates are available for homeowners and non-profit organizations in PG County who install:
There are also grants available for the installation of stormwater BMPs for non-profit or not-for-profit organizations. It is a competitive grants program subject to funding. Would be good to think about low-hanging fruit from the Green Infrastructure Plan or on the City's to do list and be in the running early for these funds.
Mount Rainier residents are encouraged to check out the website, but also to take advantage of what we already do to preserve our planet!
As a long-time resident of Mount Rainier and a homeowner, it is important to me that municipal government be inclusive of all of its residents.
It is equally important that information be communicated through all possible channel so that residents can get involved.
It is also important for residents to volunteer and serve on committees, commissions, boards and task forces.
I truly believe that municipal government is the government closes to the people, and as such should be easily accessible.
This BLOG is another effort to reach out to the residents of Mount Rainier.
