GREENHILLS DECLARES A STATE OF EMERGENCY – WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

The state, the nation, and in fact – the entire world – is dealing with a pandemic of still unknown proportions and consequences.  On March 27, 2020, the Village declared a State of Emergency. Declaring an emergency gives the Village the ability to take emergency actions or powers that may not normally be available, such as increasing spending limits, changing procurement procedures, or giving additional powers to certain departments.  

The Declaration also serves as a notification to Hamilton County and the State of Ohio that Greenhills is taking unusual actions in response to COVID-19 and may require support in the future. Declaring a State of Emergency is not a requirement to receive federal disaster reimbursement, but it may simplify the process by, once again, demonstrating that we have been impacted by COVID-19 and have taken the position that outside assistance may be needed.
