By Debi Ruiz
A special meeting to discuss COVID-19 and hold the second reading of Ordinance No. 638, a temporary emergency ordinance to address the COVID-19 disease was called for Thursday, April 2, at the council chamber of the city offices in Chamberlain.
Commissioners Monte Claussen, Hannah Ruhlman and Tim Thomas were available telephonically as well as Chamberlain-Oacoma Area Chamber of Commerce Operations Manager Angi Hanzlik, Kenny McGregor, Mike Allen, Brooke McDonald, Melissa
Rinehart, Dr. Zach McCready, Erin Hamiel and John Lenz.
Mayor Chad Mutziger began the discussion, “This is a very fluid situation. Things change very quickly. As you know, the legislature met for veto day and there were some laws proposed by the Governor that were voted down, including ones which would have given power to the cities and counties. Our attorney has looked over the ordinance and proposed some changes. Those changes can be found on the city’s website at chamberlainsd.net.”
