Some Janesville city employees are working to save taxpayers some “green,” while being environmentally friendly. The twenty workers are teaming up to find ways to make their jobs more energy efficient according the Management Analyst Al Hulick.

Hulick says it may be a while until community members see cost savings from the program but there are “intangible” benefits in the conservation practices.

The Green Team is separated into four subcommittees to address different aspects of city government, from policies to facilities. The new group meets with the Sustainable Janesville Committee today to brainstorm. Unlike the Sustainable Janesville Committee, the Green Team focuses on internal changes and doesn’t answer to the city council.
