Last chance for public comment on environment

The Tahoe Regional Executive Committee wants public input on the environmental management of Lake Tahoe.

A public comment period will be held Friday at the executive committee’s meeting in Christmas Valley.

The creation of the Tahoe Regional Executive Committee came as a result of President Clinton signing the executive order at the 1997 Presidential Summit at Lake Tahoe.

Through the partnership between the Tahoe Regional Executive Committee and the Lake Tahoe Basin Executive Committee, federal actions are coordinated to protect the ecological resources at Lake Tahoe and the economies that depend on them, according to the U.S. Forest Service.

The U.S. Forest Service, Environmental Protection Agency, Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Geological Survey, Postal Service and Federal Highway Administration comprise the Tahoe Regional Executive Committee.

“Their presence at Lake Tahoe affords the public a unique opportunity to make their views regarding the Lake Tahoe environment known to high-level agencies,” said Linda Massey, public information officer of LTBMU.
