The Tyler City Council met in special session on Tuesday, March 24 to ap­prove a resolution extend­ing the city’s Declaration of a State of Emergency. Mayor Joan Jagt, attending the meeting via conference call, told the council that the meeting was called at the direction of Lincoln County Emergency Man­ager Amber Scholten, who said the city needs to have a council meeting if the threat is to last for more than three days.
“That is why we called this meeting, to make sure that we can move forward with it,” Jagt said. “We’re asking that we continue the State of Emergency until May 4, 2020.”
