Springfield Mayor Extends Civil Emergency Order


Springfield Mayor Ken McClure has extended the city’s Civil Emergency order for the fourth time.

The move was made to provide the city with “needed flexibility” over the upcoming weeks.

“There continues to reasonably appear to exist a state of civil emergency, and I, therefore, am renewing the Sixth Proclamation of Civil Emergency for an additional 30 days; however, 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 necessary to exercise the additional powers granted to me under City Code at the present time,” McClure said in a statement.

The renewal will keep the order of Civil Emergency in place through December 12.
