Roeland Park approves agreement with Dynamhex for carbon emission tracking services

Mike Kelly Roeland Park

The Roeland Park city council on Monday evening approved an agreement for carbon emission tracking services with Dynamhex.

Roeland Park is one of the first municipalities to use Dynamhex’s software, which tracks the city’s, residents’ and business owners’ carbon footprints in real time — and can offer solutions and potential impacts of those solutions. For the first year, services provided by Dynamhex will cost the city $6,000 and $2,000 for subsequent years. If city staff decides it wants to explore additional services, ones that Dynamhex needs to devote more hours to, the maximum for subsequent years is $4,000.
