Gov. Newson's executive order on temporary suspension of evictions being examined by Elk Grove; special meeting will be available online

As part of an executive order issued by California Governor Gavin Newsom on the temporary suspensions of evictions, the City of Elk Grove said that it is working towards a policy. Although Newson issued the order, it is up to local governments to decide if they will participate in temporary suspensions of evictions. 

"The city is working on a policy relating to evictions and other items announced by the Governor last night, " Elk Grove City Manager Jason Behrmann said in an email. "We’re not yet sure if we can add that to the agenda for tomorrow night or if we need to do it at the council meeting next week."

The city council has scheduled a special meeting tomorrow night regarding the city's emergency proclamation issued last week. The city has not yet issued on advisory on attendance at the meeting given social distancing guidelines, but like regular city council meetings, the proceeding will be available online on the city's website.  

Behrmann added that city staff will have a better idea by the end of business today if the eviction matter can be added to the agenda of the special meeting.

Additionally, Behrmann noted, "We will be issuing information later today about how we plan to conduct council meetings and how the public can participate."
