  EMERGENCY AGENDA ADDENDUM 
To the Agenda for the Regular Meeting

Meeting @ 5:30 p.m.

REGULAR MEETING

Whereas, the national and Texas COVID emergency is still occurring and the number of cases and deaths is rising in Texas; and

Whereas, the Northeast Texas Health Agency has requested special assistance in contact tracing from the City of Palestine through City staff and locations, and due to recent layoffs, the City does not have excess staff currently available to provide this direct support needed; and

Whereas, the best way for the City to respond and provide this support would be to hire temporary staff and there is a  City Council meeting set for today when City Council could authorize City Manager to proceed with providing the assistance requested by NET Health,

Now, therefore, there is an urgent public necessity that this additional item be added to the July 27, 2020, City Council meeting:

13. Consider and take action on the request from NET Health to provide temporary and immediate contact tracing support needed due to the increasing COVID emergency.

The Coronavirus has created a reasonably unforeseeable situation requiring immediate action by City Council; accordingly, this emergency notice is posted with less than 72 hours' notice as permitted by the Texas Open Meetings Act.
 
I certify that the above Notice of Meeting was posted on the outdoor bulletin board at the main entrance to City Hall, 504 N. Queen Street, Palestine, Texas, in compliance with Chapter 551 of the Texas Government Code on Monday, July 27, 2020, at 10:30 a.m.

Teresa Herrera, City Secretary
