Executive Summary with Rationale and Impact:

Detailed description of the item and why we are doing it. This can be a separate attachment.

As required by the Colorado Revised Statutes (CRS), this request seeks City Council approval to extend the disaster declaration first issued by Mayor Michael B. Hancock on March 12, 2020 and currently running through May 30, 2022 for an additional period through June 27, 2022. The effects of COVID-19, including the loss of life, continue to require emergency action and resources to avert danger or damage and to protect public health. Under CRS §24-33.5-709(1), the effect of the period of local disaster cannot exceed seven days except by or with the approval of City Council. Out of an abundance of caution and with the continuing effects of the global pandemic, this action intends to further extend the current declaration in order to facilitate City continued receipt of federal public assistance funds for emergency protective measures and give the City the ability to expedite procurement for critical services that provide shelter for people in need and purchase protective equipment for Denver’s essential workers, among other time-sensitive needs.
