SAN PABLO CITY COUNCIL DECLARES LOCAL EMERGENCY AND LAUNCHES MODIFIED CITY OPERATIONS PLAN, EFFECTIVE MARCH 16, 2020

“The local emergency declaration will enable the City to activate its Emergency Operations Center, and transform City Operations to an “essential services” mode of operation with closure of non-essential City facilities, limited public services, and designation of all City employees as local disaster workers in response to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.” stated San Pablo City Manager Matt Rodriguez, acting as the City’s designated Emergency Services Director. “Our intention is to ensure all County public health protective and preventative measures are instituted for City Operations in order to protect the public, City employees and first responders.”

City Council meetings will be held in accordance with the Brown Act as currently in effect under the State Emergency Services Act, the Governor’s Emergency Declaration related to COVID‑19 and the Governor’s Executive Orders N‑25‑20 and N‑29‑20 on March 17, 2020  that allow members of the City Council, City staff and the public to participate and conduct a meeting by teleconference, videoconference or both.

In order to comply with public health orders, the requirement to provide a physical location for members of the public to participate in the meeting has been suspended. However, the public can participate in the meeting in the following ways:

  • Members of the public can watch or listen to the meeting during Livestream Online at https://www.sanpabloca.gov/1400/City-CouncilLSA-Planning-Comm-AgendasMin  and look for the Agendas tab down one-third of the home page.
  • Any comments and/or voicemail messages received by 12 noon today have been provided to the City Council and made a part of this agenda.
  • During the meeting, the public may provide public comments via email to CityClerk@SanPabloCA.gov, which will be read into the record before Council consideration of the item and will be limited to three (3) minutes. Comments that do not conform to the City Council’s rules of decorum may be summarized or redacted rather than read verbatim.
  • MEETINGS (see 2020 dates here) are held at 6:00pm on the first and third Monday of each month in the Council Chambers of City Hall, 13831 San Pablo Avenue, San Pablo, CA  94806.
