It maintains between seven and eleven members members with terms of two years each.

Working together, the City will develop and promote initiatives and activities, enact policies, learn and lead on building stronger community relationships, improving business opportunities, general education, and ensuring quality governmental services for all citizens.”

The Environmental Commission serves to educate and advise Saline residents, staff, and city officials about environmental issues.  They also, “seek opportunities to collaborate with other regional agencies, recruit volunteers to participate in environmental activities and advocate for ideas and concepts which conserve resources.” The group meets monthly at 7pm on the third Wednesday and the meetings are open to the public.
