In accordance with the principles of the Governor’s Stay at Home Order, the City’s Declaration shall be extended to and through May 6, 2020. City Manager Greg Caton signed the extension on Wednesday, April 8 and City Council will ratify during the regular meeting on Wednesday, April 15.
The state of emergency was originally declared because of the risk to the personal health and economic welfare to the persons and businesses of the City and the Greater Grand Junction community, and in light of the ongoing risk to public health, safety and economic security.
The extended declaration includes the provisions of the original declaration with the following additions:
- Effective immediately, no member of the public shall attend any City of Grand Junction City Council meeting. Meetings will be broadcast via live streaming and on cable channel 191.
- Citizen questions and/or comments on City Council meeting agenda items may be made by noon on the day of the meeting by:
- Recording a telephone message at 1-970-244-1504; or,
- Submitting comments online using the form available on the City website (gjcity.org). Written comments will be read into the record of the meeting and telephone messages will be played for Council and entered into the record of the meeting. Telephone messages will not be transcribed.
- In order for certain City business to be concluded without inordinate delay, quasi-judicial hearings that are deemed noncontroversial by the City Council will still occur. Should a quasi-judicial matter be deemed controversial by a member of City Council or a citizen reasonably objects, Council as a whole will not hear the matter.
The City is committed to serving its residents through the economic and public health crisis. We thank our residents for the support as we maintain the delivery of our core municipal services.
