Sustainability Working Group (SWG) of Johnson County

This working group was established as a extension of the Joint Entities group, and first met in September 2015. Members include primarily staff whose work relates to sustainability and, for entities without such staff, elected officials.

Entities that may participate include Johnson County, cities and villages, school district and educational institutions (U-Iowa and Kirkwood Community College) within the county.

SWG's mission and shared objectives

  • Share ideas and best practices
  • Look for opportunities for entities to participate in an already underway project
  • Provide educational meetings for elected official

The public may attend meetings, which are held quarterly from 3 to 4 p.m. on the first Wednesday in March, June, September and December. Because these are staff working sessions, public comment is reserved for the final 5 to 10 minutes of each session. The meetings may be hosted at the County Administration Building (913 S. Dubuque St., Iowa City) but may be hosted by another entity. Please check the agenda for each meeting for meeting location.
