BRANSON, Mo. – The City of Branson’s response to the recent flooding is the focus of an upcoming open house at city hall.
The event next Tuesday evening, May 23rd, is replacing a Local Government Week open house that had to be postponed due to flooding.
The rescheduled event will focus on emergency management strategies implemented to ensure citizens were safe and Branson remained open for business.
City Administrator Bill Malinen calls the flood response an effective and successful demonstration of teamwork between Branson residents, businesses, agencies and all city departments.
The open house begins at 4 p.m. with honor guard ceremonies and remarks from Mayor Karen Best, followed by a presentation in council chambers by Fire Chief Ted Martin, titled “Ted Talks: Be Over-Prepared and Underwhelmed.”
This will be followed by a public safety session hosted by Police Chief Stan Dobbins, and presentations from the Public Works and Utilities departments.
