CHENEY — At the City Council meeting Tuesday, July 27, members voted to end the COVID-19 Emergency Declaration. With emergency funds already allocated, and addition support not anticipated, the council unanimously voted a suspension of the declaration issued by Gov. Jay Inslee at the inception of the pandemic on Feb. 29, 2020.
“We are basically through the emergency,” said City administrator Mark Schuller. “We’re bringing this declaration forward because we no longer need the Eminency Declaration to be eligible to receive funding. We feel like we’re covered from that angle.”
