The Longmont City Council issued three proclamations during the May 14, city council meeting. They include:
- A Proclamation Designating the Month of May 2019 as “Stroke Awareness Month” in Longmont, Colorado
- A Proclamation Designating May 19-25, 2019 as “National Public Work Week” in Longmont, Colorado
- A Proclamation Designating May 23, 2019 as “No Bullying Day” in Longmont, Colorado
May is National Stroke Awareness Month and Longmont United Hospital submitted a proclamation that would proclaim the same for the City of Longmont.
In an effort to spread awareness of stroke signs and symptoms Longmont United Hosptial, Longmont Stroke Support Group and Longmont Stroke Council have teamed up to stress the importance of calling 911 at the first sign of a stroke.
At the request of Public Works and Natural Resources of the City of Longmont, May 19-25 has been deemed “National Public Works Week” by city council.
General Manager Public Works & Natural Resources, Dale Rademacher accepted the proclamation.
While working on a school project about bullying, Adalee Mathias, Ella Smith and Gracie Mann discovered that 13 million kids are bullied each year especially on the playground.
These students from Central Elementary asked city council to proclaim May 23 or the last day of school for the 2018-2019 school year as “No Bullying Day” in Longmont.
They hope that “by asking people to be the kind one and not the bully, the goal is to help people notice when/if they are making bad decisions,” as stated in city council communication.
