Environmental Management Council

The Steuben County Environmental Management Council (EMC) is a group of volunteer citizens, appointed by the County Legislature, to assist and advise the Legislature on environmental matters.  Members come from all areas of the county and are employed in a variety of occupations.  In addition to citizens, several agency and department personnel serve as ex-officio members.  The County Planning Department provides staff assistance for the EMC. 

In its role as an advisor to the County Legislature, the EMC gathers information on environmental matters and discusses environmental issues of local, state, national, and international significance.   The EMC also sponsors workshops and seminars and is actively involved in promoting environmental education in schools and in our communities.

The Steuben County Environmental Management Council meets on the first Thursday of alternate months.   Informational workshops for the general community are often offered on the first Thursday of non-meeting months.  Meetings start at 7:00 p.m. and are held at the County Office Building in Bath, NY. 

For more information on upcoming meetings please contact Amy Dlugos at amy@co.steuben.ny.us or by calling (607) 664-2268.  EMC meetings are open to the public and citizen input is always welcome. 

We are always looking for volunteers and encourage anyone who may be interested to attend several meetings to get acquainted with the EMC and its projects.
