City of St. Charles Declares Local State of Emergency

As result of the recent COVID-19 pandemic and the anticipated future impacts of this world crisis, the St. Charles City Council, in an emergency meeting held March 18, 2020, officially declared a local state of emergency and granted emergency authority to Mayor Raymond P. Rogina. This authority, as outlined in Ordinance 2020-M-11, is in effect until the next City Council meeting April 6, at which time the Council will consider whether to extend the authority.

This declaration primarily enables the City to receive potential federal and state disaster funding and allows the City flexibility to make decisions in order to maintain essential services during this unprecedented public health crisis.
