Is SCARCE really in trouble? A flyer posted on Kate Samp's Sustain DuPage blog, indicates the answer could be "yes." The big question seems to be whether the public, and the DuPage County Board, understands all that SCARCE does. Glen Ellyn Cool Cities has not partnered with SCARCE on any projects, but we know who they are and what they do. SCARCE is a unique educational voice and advocate for recycling and energy efficiency in Glen Ellyn and DuPage County. Elected county officials need to know how SCARCE is valued by the DuPage electorate in order to help fund it when hard budgeting decisions need to be made. If the County Board senses the public values SCARCE, the group and its programs will continue to get funding.
