The City of Huntsville will hold a public hearing on the development of the City’s Hazard Mitigation Plan. City staff hope citizens will attend to provide input, become more informed of the natural hazards the area encounters, and the mitigation strategies used in such situations.
John Waldo, the City’s Emergency Management Coordinator, says this process is important for the safety of residents.
“We believe it’s vital that the community understand the process and how the plan will be used,” said Waldo. “Everyone should be informed about potential hazards and the ways in which we deal with them. Just like having fire safety knowledge in the home, we need to be prepared for things that happen around us in the area.”
The public hearing will be at 5:30 p.m. on January 11, at the Huntsville Public Library Community Room, 1219 13th Street. The City encourages citizens to participate in the development of their Mitigation Plan and make their views known at this public hearing.

Persons with disabilities or individuals who require auxiliary aids or services and wish to attend this meeting should contact McKibben to arrange for assistance.
