Beverly Hills, CA – In his capacity as Director of Emergency Services, Beverly Hills City Manager George Chavez today declared a local emergency in response to the ongoing public health concerns surrounding COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus). Local emergencies may be declared by the City Manager provided that members of the Beverly Hills City Council ratify the declaration within seven days. A majority of the City Council is scheduled to meet through teleconference this Tuesday evening, March 17th at 7 p.m. to consider the item. Limited public access will be available in City Hall but members of the public are strongly encouraged to stay home and watch the meeting online or on BHTV. Public comment on items listed on the agenda or on any topic, including public hearings, can be shared by calling 310-285-1020 (live call-in during the meeting) or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Currently, Commission meetings scheduled for this week will be postponed. The City is finalizing the ability for ‘virtual’ participation for Commissioners and members of the public for future meetings.
In addition, to promote and protect public health, Beverly Hills City Hall is now closed to the public until further notice and will operate as a Virtual City Hall.
“With the ongoing health concerns presented by the Novel Coronavirus, we believe it is in the best interest of the community and our employees to shift our services to online and by phone,” said City Manager George Chavez. “I continue to work closely with the Mayor and City Council who are all deeply committed to the health and safety of our community.”
City personnel will continue to work from City Hall, however public counter services will not be available. Many City services may be accessed at www.beverlyhills.org or by calling 310-285-1000. City staff will be available by phone and email to continue to serve the public.
