Ordinance 612 declares a coronavirus emergency, closing all non-essential city services and meetings, and authorizes the Mayor and City Clerk to conduct city business. The executed ordinance is attached.

Section One. Consistent with the Declarations of Emergency issued by the President of the United States, the Governor of Missouri, and the Executive of St. Louis County, the Board of Alderpersons hereby declares a state of emergency in the City of Crystal Lake Park resulting from the novel coronavirus. In addition to the provisions of this Ordinance, the Board of Alderpersons adopts and ratifies the federal, state, and county declarations and the restrictions promulgated in accord with said declarations.

 Section Two. Effectively immediately, all public meetings of the City of Crystal Lake Park, all community events currently scheduled, including the April 11, 2020 Easter Egg Hunt, all Hunter Park reservations, and all city-sponsored public gatherings of any sort shall not take place and are hereby suspended, until such time as the Mayor determines otherwise as allowed per Section Four hereof.

Section Three. Occupancy inspections shall be conducted in accord with the requirements of the City’s contracted inspector, the City of Frontenac, and are subject to the following restrictions, which may be changed by the City of Frontenac at any time and in its sole discretion:

1.   Re-occupancy inspections are suspending immediately; and

2.   Inspections on new construction will continue, but if the construction is taking place in an occupied home (e.g. basement finish), the City will be asking the occupants if they are at risk for COVID exposure (e.g. recent travel outside of the country, if they experiencing any COVID symptoms including fever, cough, sore throat, difficulty breathing, or if anyone in the household is being tested or quarantined for COVID-related exposure or symptoms). If there are concerns, in the City’s sole discretion, the City will postpone the inspection until we have determined that it is safe to enter the home. 

Section Four. The Mayor is hereby authorized and directed to do all things necessary or desirable to ensure the continued governmental and administrative operations of the City during this time of emergency and is further authorized and directed to reinstate the City government, or such portions thereof, when and as the Mayor deems that the health, safety, and welfare of the Crystal Lake Park community and the public at large is assured. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Mayor shall not be allowed to exercise any legislative function or to take any action in contravention of law unless so authorized by law due to so. 

Section Five. The City Clerk is hereby authorized and directed to carry out all directives of the Mayor and to conduct the day-to-day business of the City, taking such precautions as the City Clerk deems necessary for all City personnel and contractors and for the health, safety, and welfare of the Crystal Lake Park community and the public at large.

Section Six. This Ordinance shall temporarily supersede, by permitting the suspension of, all germane provisions of the Crystal Lake Park Municipal Code and any other City ordinance or regulation for the duration of the emergency declared herein, provided that it shall not be utilized to take any action in contravention of law unless so authorized by law due to so.
