New Emergency Order Issued For Springfield

A new emergency order is in effect in Springfield.  The city’s mayor, Ken McClure, issued the order Wednesday afternoon as a housekeeping item to insure the city has needed flexibility in the coming weeks, according to a news release. 

The order reads, in part, that, “due to the passage by City Council of an ordinance setting out regulations to protect public health and safety from the spread of COVID-19, I do not believe it is necessary to exercise the additional powers granted to me under City Code at the present time.”
