The City of Monroe may be going to the voters to find the money for improvements to the United Furniture building.
After outlining the details of a feasibility study on the building, city officials said a millage proposal may be the best way to pay for fixes needed to open the building.
The building was purchased by the Port Commission last year and has been eyed for an expansion of the neighboring Dorsch Memorial Branch Library or some other public use. Read more »
WASHINGTON â€” Today, the nation’s fire marshals and victims of furniture fires are launching an awareness campaign meant to pressure the commission to set national fire safety standards for upholstered furniture.
The federal government first reported in 1972 that standards were needed, but efforts by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to adopt enforceable rules have been derailed repeatedly by disagreements among fire safety groups, the furniture industry and commission staff.
“Consumers don’t deserve this,” says Hal Stratton, who chaired the CPSC from 2002 until this July. “Nothing should last as long as (this) process. With the right standard, they can save a significant number of lives.”
Fires involving upholstered furniture kill more people each year than any other type of blaze, accounting for just over 20% of fire deaths nationwide, according to the CPSC and the National Fire Protection Association. From 1999 through 2002, the most recent period for which fatality totals are complete, those fires claimed an average of 10 lives a week.
“The foam (in upholstered furniture) is a petroleum-based product. I compare it to sitting on a bag of gasoline in your living room,” says Maine State Fire Marshal John Dean, president of the National Association of State Fire Marshals. “Once it gets ignited, you end up with a raging fire very quickly.” Read more »
