City Councilman Claude Mattox will host several community forums to educate residents on metal theft. The forums will feature Det. Mark Potts with the Police Department to discuss the various affects metal theft has on the community and how residents can protect their homes and businesses.
The forums will be held throughout the Valley on the following dates:

“Metal theft is an issue that goes beyond my district; residents throughout the entire city have been affected and education is the first step to prevent this crime from happening. I’m delighted that my fellow councilmembers are sponsoring these forums with me as we plan to reach out to residents within their districts,” said Mattox, who also serves as chairman of the City Council Public Safety & Veterans Subcommittee.
