Springfield Mayor Renews Civil Emergency Proclamation
Springfield Mayor Ken McClure has renewed the Sixth Proclamation of Civil Emergency for an additional 30 days. It will be in effect September 13 through October 13.
According to city officials, the extension is a housekeeping item to allow flexibility in the coming weeks.
McClure said in a statement Thursday that because city council passed an ordinance designed to protect the public from the spread of COVID-19 “I do not believe it necessary to exercise the additional power granted to me under City Code at the present time.”
