Coordinator of Resource Stewardship

What is a Coordinator of Resource Stewardship?

As Coordinator of Resource Stewardship it is my job, and privilege, to work alongside state agencies in order to further promote partnership and relationship both within and outside state government to develop air quality best practices for the State of Utah. Contact me with questions or ideas of how we can all be a part of Utah's clean air solution. Give me a call at 801-857-1408 or email me at email michellebrown@utah.gov.

Our Purpose

The Coordinator of Resource Stewardship position was created in statute and made effective in 2016.  The intent of the position was help break down silos with state government surrounding air quality improvement.  While the position is house in the now Utah Department of Government Operations, the Coordinator of Resource Stewardship (CRS) works with all state agencies on air quality related initiatives.  The statute (Utah Code Title 63A, Chapter 1, Section 116) creating the position specifically outlines the roles of the CRS:
