The Roy City Council will not conduct any new business this month as the city has opted to cancel its remaining meetings due to health and safety concerns related to the coronavirus.
City Clerk-Treasurer Kelli Loudin relayed the information in an email to the Nisqually Valley News on Monday, April 6.
“Due to continued health and safety concerns regarding COVID-19, and the ‘Stay Home, Stay Health’ order that defines strict social distancing guidelines, we find it essential to cancel the city council meetings for the month of April (13th and 27th),” the email read.
Gov. Jay Inslee, in the same order issued on March 24, required local governments to prioritize essential operations and scale back other departments. Essential services include departments such as courts, public works and law enforcement.
