WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The Wichita City Council has formed a board that will advise city leaders on environmental concerns such as climate change. The council voted unanimously Tuesday to support a board that will focus on advancing the city’s environmental goals, such as reducing emissions and finding economic opportunities that are environmentally friendly. The vote came after a months long effort by environmental activists. Currently, the plan is for 14 members who would meet four times a year. Some supporters said the board would be too large and should meet more often. Mayor Brandon Whipple called Tuesday’s vote a good first step.
