Dickert appointed to Mayors Water Council

Racine Mayor John Dickert has been appointed to the Mayors Water Council of the United States Conference of Mayors.

The Mayors Water Conference functions like a task force for the US Conference of Mayors. It provides mayors with a focal point for discussion of issues impacting how cities provide water and wastewater services, and protects water resources for citizens, the environment, and the local economy.

The MWC when, appropriate and necessary, will develop positions on federal legislation, regulation, and policy, and propose resolutions on water-related matters for consideration by the USCM Environment Committee.

Mayor Jennifer Hosterman of Pleasanton, Calif. and Mayor Brian Stratton of Schenectady, N.Y. will serve as co-hosts of the MWC.
