Let Council know we support the work of the Office of Environmental Quality and Sustainability, which is key in the city's progress toward reducing pollution, reducing power and water waste, and addressing climate change. Suggested message:

"I just want to thank the City of Dallas for voting unanimously for the development of the climate plan for the City. The work on this plan is now well underway. I hope that you and Council will not cut any funding from the OEQS department as it could impact the successful development of this plan. The City needs to develop the best plan possible to positively impact the city and its residents for years to come. Please ensure that OEQS gets full funding to do so."
