Last month, the Energy Communities Alliance (ECA) Executive Board met with Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz to highlight the importance of the Department of Energy’s (DOE) environmental cleanup, national security, nuclear energy and waste management missions.
The ECA Executive Board, including Chair Mayor Tom Beehan from Oak Ridge, Tennessee and other elected local government officials also stressed the importance of regular communication and partnership between DOE and the local governments that are adjacent to DOE facilities.
Moniz agreed that working with local governments is important to the success of DOE.
Earlier in the day, the ECA Executive Board also met with National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Administrator Frank Klotz, Acting Assistant Secretary for Environmental Management Dave Huizenga, and other DOE and Administration officials, as well as congressional staff.
Beehan stated that local governments can be DOE’s asset for gaining support for missions and for infrastructure development at the sites, but that for that to occur local governments must be involved in decision-making. eehan also stressed the importance of land transfer to local communities.
