Austin City Council Marks Anniversary of Winter Storm Uri with a Proclamation and Moment of Silence for the Lives Lost

Community volunteers, City of Austin employees and nonprofit organizations to be recognized as February is proclaimed Winter Storm Uri Remembrance Month

On Tuesday, Feb. 15 at 8:30 a.m., Austin City Council, Mayor Adler and other City of Austin leadership will honor community heroes, volunteers, first responders and City staff who played a critical role during Winter Storm Uri in February 2021. This includes a proclamation declaring February as Winter Storm Uri Remembrance Month and a moment of silence for those who lost their lives due to the impacts of the winter freeze.
