Mayor Stephen Terrell honored Allen building inspectors with a city proclamation on Tuesday, April 28.
"Building safety affects many aspects of our lives," said Mayor Terrell. "Because of the enforcement of construction codes, people enjoy the comfort of structures that are safe and sound."
Allen building inspectors look not only for structural soundness, but for issues with electrical, plumbing, accessibility, fire safety and energy efficiency.
"Our reputation as a community of choice depends on the continued confidence of residents, workers and businesses," said Mayor Terrell.
Building Safety Month runs May 1-31.
