Working with Local Governments

Approaching local officials about your environmental concerns, and encouraging municipal or county governments to pass a resolution or ordinance to protect local water, public health, and environments can be a powerful tool for communities to protect themselves! It may seem intimidating to approach local officials to urge them to pass an ordinance or resolution, but with the right approach, the whole process can be quite empowering.

Clean Water for NC has prepared the guide below specifically about approaching local governments to pass a resolution or ordinance related to fracking. Read it for tips and advice that can also apply to approaching local officials on other issues, too!
