The city's environment and climate protection committee — the "climate protection" part is new this term — had its last meeting this week before the summer break, and it will meet just once more time before this fall's municipal election.

The committee oversees garbage and recycling, water and sewer services, and strategies for improving the environment in general. Here are some highlights — or, in some instances, lowlights — of the last four years.
