RESO 2020-078 IN THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF LIVERMORE, CALIFORNIA A RESOLUTION OF CONTINUED LOCAL EMERGENCY On March 16, 2020, the City Council adopted a resolution, Ratifying the Proclamation of the Director of Emergency Services Concerning the Existence of a Local Emergency(Reso. No. 2020-033). The local emergency proclamation concerns conditions of extreme peril to the safety of persons and property, which have arisen within the City of Livermore due the COVID-19 pandemic. California Government:Code section 8630 directs that.the City Council shall review the need for continuing the local emergency at least once every 60 days. The regular City Council meeting scheduled for May 25, 2020, was canceled in light of the Memorial Day holiday, and the City Council's next regular meeting was June 8, 2020. The state is continuing to implement its four-stage framework to allow Californians to gradually reopen some lower-risk businesses and public spaces while continuing to preserve public health in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though the state has allowed certain industry sectors to resume operations subject to specified.conditions and the protections identified in state supplied guidelines to protect workers and customers, numerous sectors remain subject to the state's shelter-in-place order and the orders from the state's public health officer. In addition, Alameda County's Public Health Officer's orders, including the shelter in place orders, remain more restrictive than the state due to the regional effects of COVID-19, and fewer industry sectors have been allowed to reopen locally. Due to these conditions, City staff reports that the emergency conditions identified by the proclamation still exist today. City staff recommended the City Council continue the proclamation of a local emergency ratified on March 16, 2020. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the City Council of the City of Livermore has reviewed the March 13, 2020, proclamation of local emergency the City Council ratified on March 16, 2020 (Reso. No. 2020-033) and finds that conditions warrant continued maintenance of that proclamation of local emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic. On motion of Council Member Carling, seconded by Vice Mayor Woerner, the foregoing resolution was passed and adopted on June 8, 2020, by the following vote: AYES: Council Members Carling, Coomber, Munro, Vice Mayor Woerner, Mayor Marchand NOES: None ABSENT: None ABSTAIN: None ATT:Sl': APPROVED AS TO FORM: atti Mane Weber-_- ' - Kelly Trujillo City Clerk Assistant City Attorney Date: Jurie'15, 202Q' RESOLUTION NO. 2020-078
