Title: Sustainability Associate
Number of positions: 1
Reports to: Energy Corps Program Director
Term of service: October 1, 2019 – August 28, 2020
Anticipated service schedule: 1700 hours over course of service term. Roughly 40 hours per week. Occasional evening/weekend hours may be necessary.
Livingston and Park County are in transition. Traditional industries such as agriculture and railroad maintenance have given way to tourism, residential development, outdoor activities and cultural events. We have a housing shortage, lack of high paying jobs, traffic congestion and substantial poverty. Through community and administrative support, Livingston and Park County have made progress in energy use, conservation, and recycling programs and want to continue addressing sustainability through our operations and in the community.
Addressing energy costs in our operations and within the community is one substantial way of reducing the outflow of energy dollars and providing economic development in the larger community. Given our tight budgets, both City and County governments have a commitment to make smart, economic decisions concerning energy use. We seek to join the energy transition movement in taking advantage of our energy resources to deliver economic justice and community-based development.
