Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer Introduces Legislation to Keep Our Neighborhoods Safe

“I’m pleased to be introducing these two pieces of legislation today,” said Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer. “While this resolution and bill deal with very different topics they both strive to reach the same goal – safeguarding our residents and making our neighborhoods a safer place to live. The resolution seeks to protect the most vulnerable among us, our senior citizens and the disabled, while the bill seeks to create a comprehensive plan to avoid future catastrophes when drilling near flammable pipelines takes place.”
