Building safety is at the the forefront of city business after Local Union president Dan Mapes of the American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees, brought concerns to a city council meeting in March.
“What are we doing to ensure the safety of the building,” asked Mapes.
“We are just letting anyone walk into the building and I have reports of someone walking around the building with an iron rod. Allowing people to have free-range around the building is not safe for the employees of the city.”
As a response, Councilman Bryant scheduled a series of meetings with the mayor’s office to discuss possible measures that can be taken to secure the building.
Bryant provided an update to council at the last city council meeting on April 19th. The full statement is attached below.
