Mayor Pro Tem Karen Farrer and Councilmember Mikke Pierson have been appointed to chair the Council's Disaster Response and Recovery Ad Hoc Committee, which will hold its first public community meeting this Saturday, February 2, 2:00 PM at Malibu City Hall (23825 Stuart Ranch Rd.)
The City of Malibu remains committed to transparency and to actively seeking ways to improve our emergency planning and response capabilities, and the Ad Hoc Committee will further that goal. That is even more important now, when we have suffered the worst natural disaster in the City’s history, and knowing that we will face earthquakes, wildfires and other disasters in the future.
The Committee will examine all aspects of the Woolsey Fire disaster in order to help the community and the City be better prepared for future disasters. All in the community are welcome to attend and share their stories, ideas and insights and ask questions. During the City Council meeting on Monday, January 28, the Council voted unanimously to provide funding for the Committee to hold community meetings.
SUBMIT QUESTIONS, STORIES AND IDEAS BY EMAIL
Anyone unable to attend the meeting on February 2 may send stories, ideas, insights and questions to the Ad Hoc Committee by email to RecoveryAdHoc@MalibuCity.org. This new dedicated email address is exclusively accessible by the Committee Chairs. Farrer and Pierson invite all community members to use it to communicate with the Ad Hoc Committee at any time.
