Bloomington Prepares to Issue Local Emergency Ordinance

 

BLOOMINGTON, IL- With the recent announcement by the McLean County Health Department of McLean County’s first confirmed case of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the City of Bloomington stands at the ready to issue a Local Emergency Ordinance at its City Council meeting on Monday, March 23.

 

“We set the stage for this with the issuance of my Executive Order earlier in the week,” explains City Manager Tim Gleason. “The first confirmed COVID-19 case in McLean County was the trigger for this next step of issuing a Local Emergency Ordinance. We are ready.”

 

This action will allow for an additional level of continuity of City operations during the COVID-19 emergency. It also enacts a moratorium on City utility shut offs and the accrual of certain interest and penalties and allows curbside pickup and delivery of liquor by restaurants and taverns. A copy of the full ordinance is anticipated to be available in the Council packet sometime on Friday, March 20.

 

“Residents of the City of Bloomington should be confident that their leaders are doing exactly what they should be doing,” says Bloomington Mayor Tari Renner. “I have full confidence in City Manager Tim Gleason to lead this effort, and I’m confident the Town of Normal will follow suit soon.”

 

The City Council will meet to issue the ordinance on Monday, March 23 at 6 pm. While the public may attend the meeting at City Hall, a livestream of the meeting is available at www.cityblm.org and is encouraged for social distancing purposes.
