Emergency Declaration Order 2020-02
Suspending all meetings of Boards, Commissions and Committees of the City of Ely.

I, Chuck Novak, Mayor of the City of Ely, do hereby suspend all meetings of Boards, Commissions and Committees of the City of Ely until further Notice.

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented an unprecedented challenge to our country, state, county and city. It is imperative that we take steps in an attempt to stay ahead of this challenge and take all measures recommended by the Federal and State governments intended to prevent a further spread of the virus as well as implementing a response strategy.

Concerns of any Chairperson or member of any Board, Commission or Committee that determines there is an inability of the City of Ely to perform the responsibilities and necessary services of the City are to be addressed to Harold Langowski , the City Clerk/Treasurer and Director of Operations. The Clerk will coordinate with me and the city attorney to determine an alternate method of solution that will not require a physical meeting.

As we proceed, there is an ongoing effort to establish a capability to meet by various on-line capa-bilities. The Open Meeting Law must apply with the public having access and an ability to partici-pate.

Dated this 24th Day of March, 2020

Mayor Chuck Novak
