Mayor Brian Loughmiller will issue a proclamation at the City Council meeting on May 2, 2017, declaring May 2017 as Building Safety Month.
Building Safety Month is a national public safety awareness campaign to help individuals, families and businesses understand what it takes to create safe, resilient, affordable and energy-efficient homes and buildings.
