    Eagan was praised for Energy Best Practices at a recent League of Minnesota Cities Conference.  The City of Eagan, with their Energy & Environment Commission, has joined other forward-thinking (and resource-aware) Minnesota cities in joining the Green Step Cities Program and analyzing and acting on projects and programs that save energy, money and enhance the community.


    FYI - The City of Bloomington had initially joined the Green Step Cities program, but backed out.  The program seems to be working well in Eagan in focusing efforts and tracking benefits, as well as Edina.

    A new EPA Mercury Rule will help protect the health of vulnerable Americans, Fish and Wildlife!
