Rockland: Town added to the state’s “Green Communities” list

Seven more Massachusetts communities, including one south shore town, Rockland, have been designated “Green Communities” by the Patrick-Murray administration.

To qualify for the designation, a city or town must commit to five clean energy leadership criteria that are part of the “Green Communities Act”, and agree to cut energy use by 20 percent.

Rockland town Administrator Allan Chiocca says the town is getting more than $185,000 in funding from the state.

There are now 110 so-called “green communities” statewide.

About David Skill

Dave Skill’s radio career began in the fall of 1964 when he arrived on the campus of Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA. Dave barely got his bags unpacked when he paid a visit to WCHC, the campus radio station. And, before he knew it, he was spending so much time as a disc jockey and news writer/reporter, it seemed like he was majoring in “radio” and minoring in academics at “The Cross”. As you might imagine, his grades reflected it! During his junior and senior years, he also worked weekends in news and as a disc jockey at WNEB, the CBS radio affiliate in Worcester at the time.
