Rodney Bartlett, the Capital Projects Manager in Peterborough, was reappointed as one of the 16 members of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Local Government Advisory Committee’s Small Communities Advisory Subcommittee.

The two advisory committees to the EPA include representatives from 30 different states, Tribal nations, and U.S. territories, representing a diverse cross-section of cities, counties, towns, and communities across the United States.

“This diverse, highly qualified group of local leaders will bring new voices and ideas to EPA’s work,” said EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan. “EPA is counting on their input and collaboration to help achieve our mission in every zip code. From tackling climate change to advancing environmental justice, we need local partners at the table to address our most pressing environmental challenges.”

“EPA New England is thrilled that Rodney Bartlett has been reappointed to EPA’s Small Communities Advisory Subcommittee. This is an important forum for EPA to hear from local leaders about how our work can best help local communities and protect people’s health. Mr. Bartlett has already proven to be an effective partner in our work ensuring a cleaner, healthier environment, and we expect he will continue to make a real difference in this new role,” said EPA New England Acting Regional Administrator Deborah Szaro.

“I am thrilled to be re-appointed to LGAC/SCAS. This federally authorized committee provides valuable and local government-based advice to the EPA Administrator. The best committee I have ever served on in my career,” Bartlett said.

Chartered in 1993 under the Federal Advisory Committee Act, the Local Government Advisory Committee provides independent policy advice to the EPA Administrator on a broad range of issues affecting local governments. The Small Community Advisory Subcommittee was established by EPA in 1996 to advise the Administrator on environmental issues of concern to the resi dents of smaller communities.
