South Fulton to Consider Shelter-in-Place Ordinance

South Fulton’s mayor and city council will hold a virtual emergency special called meeting on Thursday, April 2 at 10 a.m.

The agenda will include a discussion on the city’s response to COVID-19 and consideration of an emergency procurement ordinance and shelter-in-place emergency ordinance. The meeting will be broadcast via the city’s YouTube channel.

Several metro area cities have already implemented shelter-in-place orders including Atlanta, Chamblee, Dunwoody, Forest Park and Sandy Springs. Clayton County has also implemented the mandate.

At South Fulton’s last city council meeting on March 17, officials adopted an emergency resolution that called for a 9 p.m. curfew, prohibited gatherings of 10 or more and required businesses to be closed by 9 p.m., with the exception of medical and pharmaceutical establishments. All city meetings were also cancelled until further notice.

All essential employees which include the city’s police and fire department personnel have continued to provide city services during this period. The city’s administrative offices have continued to conduct business through telecommuting.

City facilities, including arts centers and parks, have been closed. And while the city’s municipal court has postponed all cases, fines can still be paid online.
