Prairie Village Mayor declares local state of emergency due to COVID-19 pandemic, effective immediately

Post Date:03/16/2020 4:10 PM

Prairie Village Mayor Eric Mikkelson has declared a local state of emergency related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Prairie Village City Hall and the Public Works Administration building will be closed to the public effective at 8 a.m. March 17.

“This unprecedented pandemic requires prompt, extraordinary measures to reduce the speed and incidence of COVID-19's transmission and infection rate through our community,” Mikkelson said.  "To protect the health of residents and City employees, we are prepared to use all available tools.  In addition to these measures, we encourage all Prairie Village residents, businesses and other organizations to practice social distancing and swiftly implement all appropriate risk mitigation measures within their control."

Those emergency declaration tools for the City include:

  • The authority to enforce directives from the Centers for Disease Control and Johnson County to discourage public gatherings of more than 50 people;
  • The authority, if necessary, to close business establishments such as bars and restaurants; and
  • Securing federal, state and county emergency resources and reimbursements as available.

The City Council will hold a special meeting Wednesday at 1 p.m. to establish the duration of the emergency resolution.

While essential and emergency city services will continue seamlessly, City Hall and the Public Works Administration building will be closed to the public, except by appointment. Residents with city business are encouraged to use the City's website and phone. To minimize disruptions to city services, staff will be working on-site and will be available to answer questions and conduct business via phone, fax, email, mail, or online. All public City Committee meetings have been canceled through the first week of April. Municipal Court cases originally scheduled for March are being rescheduled for June.

The Police Department is enacting protective measures and will continue to respond to emergency calls for service. If you have an emergency, call 9-1-1.

Residents are asked to check in on their neighbors via phone or email.

“Data indicates that this virus is particularly harmful to those over the age of 50,” Mikkelson said. “Please reach out to your neighbors, check in on them, and see if there’s anything you can do to help mitigate risks while maintaining appropriate social distance.”
