6:00 P.M. – Call to Order and Pledge of Allegiance by Chairman Cline
Moment of Silence
In 2014 the Bee City USA organization formed to act locally about a global issue. The Bee City USA organization provides a framework for communities to come together to conserve native pollinators by providing them with healthy habitats. The organization is an initiative of the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation. The organization requires affiliate localities to identify a committee to oversee compliance, dedicate public areas to pollinator plantings, and offer educational programming to the community on the importance of pollinators.
Upon review of the program, staff identified that many of the requirements to be recognized as a Bee City Community are already underway in Campbell County and would like to submit an application to become an affiliate locality of the Bee City Community organization. Upon acceptance, Campbell County will join 193 other Bee City USA affiliates represented in 46 states of the United States.
