HOLLAND, Michigan – On Saturday, June 6, city of Holland residents could hear a knock on their door from an enthusiastic energy ambassador. More than 100 volunteers will disperse throughout the neighborhoods in Holland for two reasons – to educate residents about ways to reduce their energy consumption, and to give away items that will help them do just that.

Every person who answers their door will receive a Cree LED (light-emitting diode) bulb valued at ten dollars. Other giveaways include free home energy audits by Dr. Energy Saver, worth $425, and a chance to win one of 125 NEST Smart Thermostats, valued at $250.

City Manager, Ryan Cotton, and Holland BPW General Manager, Dave Koster are recruiting city staffers, city council members, spouses, and community members to form what will be the biggest door-to-door energy conservation campaign the city has known.

The official budgeting process for fiscal year (FY) 2016 began in January 2015 when the City Council held the annual "Coffee with Council," followed by its annual retreat in January 2015. From the input and outcomes of those public events, the City's Leadership Team,  led by City Manager Ryan Cotton, will be meeting to discuss budgeting scenarios and suggestions.  In early April, Ryan Cotton presened a proposed budget to the City Council for its review and discussion.
