Legislating in the Age of COVID-19



No doubt about it, municipalities and counties are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. Processes are shifting, health safety standards are flexing, and businesses and citizens are eager for guidelines on how to react and cope. Many local governments are responding with legislation that covers a wide range of critical topics, including social distancing, virtual meetings, and face masks.

We’re introducing a new blog series: “Trending Legislation: Hot Topics for Local Governments”

We’ll be examining new legislative trends, offering examples from some of our client communities to help you draft or amend your own ordinances, and providing helpful resources for each topic.

Read the first blog that addresses face masks and coverings.

Future topics will include mass gatherings, urban farming, and affordable housing.

Keeping your online Code current and up-to-date is vital

We want to remind our clients – and all communities – of the importance of keeping your municipal or county codes as current and as accessible as possible – no matter what the topic of your legislation might be. Municipal officials and staff, constituents, business owners, and law enforcement depend on your code being a reliable, accurate resource.
