Clean Streets,  Cleaner Air for Rockport
Rockport Mayor Gay Ann Harney and Street Department Superintendent Darren Ewing appeared in a photo in the Spencer County Journal (right) standing in front of the city's new street sweeper. The 2017 Tymco Model 600 sweeper was delivered on November 15 and was acquired through a $230,000 grant with the assistance of South Shore Clean Cities.
New Year Brings Hope for Greener Practices
The start of a new year is filled with optimism, a time to begin anew with a clean slate and hope for a better tomorrow.

Those of us in the environmental sector are in the business of hope. Much of our work in the sustainable transportation and clean energy sectors is focused on long-term, cumulative solutions. While the results are undoubtedly measurable - in emissions reductions, cost savings and improved air quality - they aren't always easy to envision.
