OLDSMAR STATE OF EMERGENCY &
On Monday, March 16, 2020, Oldsmar Mayor Eric Seidel and City Council held an Emergency Meeting regarding the coronavirus. During that time, the Mayor read his Proclamation of Emergency, and Resolution 2020-05 was subsequently passed. This Resolution declares a state of local emergency for Oldsmar as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. It provides for the waiver of procedures and formalities as required by law, pursuant to Florida Statute Chapter 252.
The declaration of a municipal emergency is part of the City’s ongoing efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19 and will ensure the municipal government can continue to act and respond quickly to the pandemic and any other events that arise in the weeks ahead. Since that time, EXECUTIVE ORDERS have been issued, which can be viewed under our Public Notices website page at www.myoldsmar.com/692/Public-Notices.
The City of Oldsmar appreciates the cooperation and patience our community has continued to show. These resources are a means to assist Oldsmar residents and businesses during this trying time.
