Citizens Shaping Environmental Policy

The Broome County Environmental Management Council (EMC) is a citizen advisory group to County government on local environmental matters. Our mission is to provide support and advice to the County Executive, Legislature, municipal bodies and citizens; conduct environmental research activities; raise public awareness through education; investigate sound methods of ecological planning for the County’s natural resources;  review environmental assessments, plans and reports; and to respond to other environmental concerns as they arise.
