ATLANTA—Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms is extending three Administrative Orders to assist Atlanta residents and businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. The orders provide for an additional sixty days through Aug. 30 for the following:
The first order directs the Department of Watershed Management (DWM) to refrain from taking any action that would result in the termination of water services to any DWM customer due to non-payment through Aug. 30, 2020.
The second order directs all parking enforcement officers to refrain from taking any action to enforce parking regulations, which would result in the towing or immobilization of vehicles in restricted areas of the City’s right of way through Aug. 30.
The third order directs the Chief Financial Officer to refrain from taking any action to issue citations or to otherwise impose penalties against any individual or business entity subject to taxation in accordance with Chapter 30, Article III for delinquency on any unpaid tax following the April 1 deadline through August 30, 2020.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the mayor issued a series of Executive and Administrative Orders to minimize the impact of the virus. Those orders can be viewed online here.
