Madison General Ordinance Sec. 33.11 - Advises the Mayor and Common Council in making studies and recommendations relative to water, land and air quality, noise abatement, use control, safety and management of the lakes, rivers and streams and other bodies of water and their shorelands under the jurisdiction of the City and all drains, outlets and sewers emptying into any such stream or bodies of water; acts toward improved quality of land, air and water; makes recommendations on matters pertaining to environmental quality, including measures to further the maintenance of safe and healthful conditions; protects spawning grounds, fish and aquatic life, and preserves shore cover and natural beauty. (Title of body changed from commission to committee per MGO Sec. 33.11, adopted 3-17-2009, effective 8-1-2009.) ORD-20-00055, File ID #59138 (effective date: 6/11/2020) - This ordinance eliminates the Committee on the Environment. The Committee is currently tasked with making studies and recommendations relative to the City’s urban environment, including the water, land and air quality. The delegated responsibilities of the Committee on the Environment overlap and can largely be assumed by the Sustainable Madison Committee, or other Committees, or even ad hoc committees, as needed.
