She successfully authored the award-winning Green Print resolution which has reduced Milwaukee County’s environmental footprint and saved taxpayer dollars. Due to her efforts, Milwaukee County has an environmental sustainability director and a new environmental ethic.
Dimitrijevic recently authored legislation to construct a solar farm at Milwaukee’s Mitchell Airport which would supply clean energy and create green jobs. Recently, Chairwoman Dimitrijevic successfully led an effort to attract more riders to public transit by adding new service to suburban job centers and providing free rides to disabled and older adults.
Dimitrijevic has spoken at the Green Vehicle Conference many times and will address attendees at the Sustainability Summit on Day 2. http://www.sustainabilitysummit.us/
“It is an honor to welcome summit attendees to Milwaukee County where we are working every day to be a better environmental citizen. It is our responsibility as governmental leaders to preserve our resources for future generations.
