Mayor Steve Benjamin and Columbia City Council unanimously approved an emergency ordinance that extends the temporary suspension of the normal operating procedures of City Council and City Boards and Commissions meetings.

This allows for the Mayor, Council Members, Board Members and Commission Members to remotely participate in voting and operational procedures by telephone or other means of electronic communication and extends the requirement that face coverings or masks be worn in public in the City of Columbia.

The previous ordinance would have expired on October 4, 2020. The extension approved by City Council today extends the ordinance to expire on the 61st day after enactment of this ordinance.
