PROCLAMATION

WHEREAS, Each year, Louisiana's underground utility infrastructure is jeopardized by unintentional damage by those who fail to call to have underground lines located prior to digging; and
WHEREAS, undesired consequences such as service interruption, damage to the environment and personal injury and even death are the potential results; and
WHEREAS, Louisiana law requires that anyone planning excavation or demolition must notify Louisiana One Call and, if a facility must be located, personnel will be sent to mark the location of underground facilities at no cost to the requesting party; and
WHEREAS, Louisiana One Call, the State Department of Natural Resources and the State Office of Public Safety promote the National Call-Before-You-Dig number, 8ll, as well as the use of safe digging practices, in an effort to reduce these damages; and
WHEREAS, Through education on safe digging practices, excavators and homeowners can save time and money keeping Louisiana and our nation safe and connected by making a simple call to 811 in advance of any digging project, waiting the required amount of time, respecting the marked lines, and finally, digging with care around the marks; and
WHEREAS, All parties agree that safe digging is a shared responsibility:

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Brad Clifton, Mayor of the Village of Loreauville, Louisiana, do hereby proclaim April, 2017 as

“Safe Digging Month”

In the Village of Loreauville, Louisiana, and ask all residents to acknowledge as such.
