The newly created office aimed to assure its sustained place by playing a role in sustaining the environment. Two years later, post-implementation of its Sustainability Management Plan, the department had lived up to its promise of sustainability. The city, partnering with local environmental groups, had reduced its carbon footprint by nearly thirty percent, through eco-friendly practices related to fuel, electricity, water system improvement, and recycling.
