The Department of Natural Resources’ Eastern and Western Upper Peninsula Citizens’ Advisory Councils (CACs) will meet Monday, March 19, from 6 to 9 pm, in the Huron and Erie rooms at Northern Michigan University in Marquette.
Agenda items will include division updates from DNR staff, an overview presentation of the DNR’s budget, council budget discussion and public comment.
The Eastern Upper Peninsula and Western Upper Peninsula CACs meet jointly once each year to discuss items of interest across the Upper Peninsula.
The CACs are designed to advise the DNR on regional programs and policies; identify areas in which the department can be more effective and responsive; and offer insight and guidance from members’ own experiences and constituencies.
The council members represent a wide variety of natural resource and recreation stakeholders and interest groups.
Agenda items are set by the council members, and council recommendations are forwarded to the DNR for consideration.
CAC meetings are open to the public.
