EDINBURG, TEXAS (KVEO) – Edinburg City Council voted to continue the city’s current Local State of Disaster Declaration until further notice.

The vote that took place on Tuesday, July 28, allows the city to take measures to reduce the possible exposure of disease, prevent the spread and control of risk. The declaration is meant to promote the public health, safety and welfare of residents.

The order was first signed by Mayor Richard Molina last Friday, July 24, in expectation of wind damage and disastrous flooding by Hurricane Hanna, as well protecting residents infected with or exposed to COVID-19.
