Charlestown Township
Environmental Advisory Committee (EAC)
Reorganization Meeting Minutes
Wednesday, January 13th, 2021

Due to COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, the meeting was held remotely via Zoom.

Attendees present were:
Pete Goodman (Chair), Carol Armstrong (Vice Chair), Veda Maany (Secretary), Daniel Walker, Meg Solomon, Esther Estes, and Sharon Richardson.

Chair opened the meeting at 6:05.

Chair is appointed by the Board of Supervisors.
Richardson made a motion to approve Armstrong and Maany to continue their positions as vice chair and secretary respectively. Solomon seconded it, followed by unanimous approval.

Meeting dates for 2021 were then discussed.
There was unanimous agreement to change monthly meeting time to 7 pm (from 6 pm). We will notify Linda to post this change and update Zoom schedule. Some members are attending the Penn State Extension webinar series “Woods in your Backyard” scheduled for Wednesday evenings for the next 2 months. Thus, a request was made to change February 10 and March 10th to Monday February 8th and March 8th starting at 7 pm. The request was voted on and approved.

Appointing liaisons to other township committees were discussed. Goodman will attend Board of Supervisors, Walker for Planning Commission and Estes volunteered for Parks and Rec (3rd Thursday from 7:30 to 8:30). We agreed to cover for one another if an EAC member is unable to attend.

Organizational meeting ended at 6:29 pm.
