California Building Safety Week Proclamation
May 7th – 13th, 2006

WHEREAS, the safety of the buildings we occupy daily is essential to the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of the City of Brentwood; and

WHEREAS, among the world’s most fundamental laws and ordinances are those which provide standards for the safe construction of buildings in which people live, work, and play; and

WHEREAS, in an ongoing effort to ensure that residents and individuals patronizing business within the City of Brentwood are afforded the highest construction standards available, the Building Division is proud to announce California Building Safety Week; and

WHEREAS, California Building Safety Week emphasizes the important role the Building Division of the Community Development Department plays in the development and maintenance of safe buildings within our community; and

WHEREAS, the Building Division of the City of Brentwood is helping to ensure the public’s health, safety and general well being by reviewing building construction plans, issuing building permits and inspecting buildings during and after construction to ensure that they comply with the minimum necessary health and safety regulations. It is this preventative work that contributes to the success of keeping the occupants of the structure safe during an emergency; and

WHEREAS, for construction and building codes to be effective and enforced, understanding and cooperation must exist between code officials and the people they serve; and

WHEREAS, through the untiring efforts of local building officials and their cooperative relationship with the design and construction industry, the administration of these health and life-safety standards is assured; and

WHEREAS, cities and counties across California are joining to promote building safety through the observation of California Building Safety Week.

NOW, THEREFORE, we, the City Council of the City of Brentwood do hereby proclaim the week of May 7th – 13th, 2006, as California Building Safety Week. We urge all citizens to participate in California Building Safety Week activities to help promote building safety, create awareness as to the importance of construction and building codes, and to spotlight the role of the dedicated code official in administering those codes.

Dated this 25th day of April 2006
