ASSEMBLY AGENDA/MANAGER'S REPORT
THE CITY AND BOROUGH OF JUNEAU, ALASKA

Ordinance 2020-15: An Ordinance Amending the Continuity of Government Code to Improve City and Borough of Juneau Procedures for Emergencies.

MANAGER'S REPORT:

A continuity of government code was created in 1962 during the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis when communities were concerned about physical attacks. While the underlying concepts in the continuity of government code remain relevant today—like designation of successors for certain municipal officers—some code provisions are outdated. This ordinance would modernize the continuity of government code to provide the current form of City & Borough of Juneau government better code authority to deal with emergencies other than physical attacks.

This ordinance was heard at the March 13, 2020, Assembly Human Resources Committee and referred to this meeting for further review.

RECOMMENDATION:

The City Manager recommends the Assembly set this ordinance for introduction at the next regular or special Assembly meeting.
