[ARCHIVED] City Council Adopts Urgency Ordinance

City affirms San Luis Obispo County Emergency Services Director and Public Health Officer Orders related to the
COVID-19 Emergency

PASO ROBLES, CA – March 27, 2020. The City Council has adopted an Urgency Ordinance affirming the orders of the Emergency Services Director and Public Health Officer of the County of San Luis Obispo related to the COVID-19 State and Local Emergency. This allows the City to enforce two recent County orders. 

The first provides a temporary moratorium on certain residential and commercial evictions due to COVID-19. Tenants must provide required notice to landlords and are responsible for paying all rent within six months of the local emergency. Violations of the Shelter in Home Order may be enforced as well. Business violations in Paso Robles can be reported at 805-237-6464 or through the County Enforcement Line at 805-788-2222. 

The Police Department’s Code Enforcement Division will be following up on business violations and is asking for cooperation following these orders. If a business chooses to stay open despite a determination that the business is not essential, administrative fines and sanctions may apply. 

Police Chief Ty Lewis encourages the collaboration and voluntary compliance of our business community, stating, “Certainly, these times are tough on business and the self-employed; I am imploring everyone to follow these orders. If a business chooses to stay open despite a determination that the business is not essential, there could be administrative fines and sanctions. I certainly don’t want to go down that road and hope everyone understands the position they’ll put themselves and my officers in if they don’t comply.”
