Int 1154-2016 *Mark Treyger~SPONSORRecovery and ResiliencyCreation of a displaced persons registry.IntroductionThis bill would require the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) to create a website through which persons that are displaced, or out of communication, because of an emergency event can let others know where they are and how they are doing. After an emergency, people may be residing in evacuation centers, the residences of friends and family, or elsewhere. This website would provide a mechanism for letting a person make it be publicly known that they survived the emergency, and would allow them to privately share password-protected additional information, such as their current location and contact information. Only visitors to the website who knew the password would be able to view the additional information. Visitors to the website would be able to sign up for an e-mail notification whenever a person with a specified name registered for the website. The bill would also require OEM to make information on the website available in all evacuation shelters and include it in their public awareness materials.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available

Int 1156-2016 *James G. Van Bramer~SPONSOREnvironmental ProtectionRequiring the posting of current and planned water supply outages to the city’s website and to the website of the dept of environmental protection.IntroductionThis bill would require the online posting of notifications about current and planned water service outages on the city’s website as well as the website of the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). Currently, real-time information about water outages is generally not provided online. Complaints to 311 are logged but no other information is provided in the normal course of business about planned or emergency outages and estimated times for service restoration. The proposed law would address this problem but would not replace DEP’s current practice of posting flyers in affected areas.Referred to Comm by Council  Action details Not available
