Ohio Lake Erie Commission to Hold December Meeting

The Ohio Lake Erie Commission will hold its next quarterly meeting Wednesday, December 16, 2015, at 1 p.m. at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources – Division of Geological Survey office in Delaware. The meeting will be held in the Horace R. Collins Conference Room, 3307 South Old State Road.

During the meeting, the commission will hear program updates. In addition, the commission will have a facilitated discussion regarding the direction of the commission’s program, including the OLEC’s mission, focus, outreach and funding.

Also during the meeting, a new chairman and secretary for 2016 will be designated and the commission’s 2016 meeting dates will be set.

OLEC oversees Ohio’s Lake Erie Protection Fund, a grant program for projects that benefit the Lake Erie watershed economically and environmentally. This fund is supported by Ohioans who purchase a Lake Erie license plate displaying the Marblehead Lighthouse or the Lake Erie preserver and other donations.

All OLEC meetings are open to the public and include reports from the member state agencies and advisory committees, followed by a public comment period. Organizations and citizens are encouraged to attend.

OLEC was established to preserve Lake Erie’s natural resources, protect the quality of its waters and ecosystem and promote economic development in the region. The director of the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (Ohio EPA) serves as the commission’s chairman. Additional members include the directors of the state departments of Transportation, Health, Development Services, Agriculture, Natural Resources and four additional members appointed by Governor John Kasich.
