RESO 2020-133 IN THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF LIVERMORE, CALIFORNIA 1 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 to the COVID-19 pandemic. On June 8, 2020, the City Council adopted Resolution No. 2020-078 finding that conditions warranted continued maintenance of that emergency proclamation. . 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 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. On July 13, 2020, the Public Health Officer for the State of California determined that the community spread of the infection is of increasing concern across the state and ordered various businesses to once again close to combat COVID- 19. 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 I proclamation still exist today. 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.
