Title
An Ordinance to Amend the Code of the City of Ann Arbor by Repeal of Chapter 15, Emergency and Disaster Management, Title I, of the Code and Adding a New Chapter 15, Emergency and Disaster Management, Title I of Said Code (Ordinance No. ORD-17-18)
Memorandum
Attached is the proposed ordinance revision of Chapter 15 of the City Code, which states the policy and organization for the efficient utilization of municipal resources in connection with planning, responding to and recovering from natural and human-made disasters and emergencies.

The Ordinance was reorganized for ease of use in addition to the following specific changes:
? Provides a clear delineation of the duties and responsibilities of the Mayor, City Administrator, Emergency Management Coordinator based on their respective statutory, charter and ordinance authority during a local or State emergency or disaster.
? Maintains the established Emergency Management Program and the election by the City to designate of a local Emergency Management Coordinator under PA 390 of 1976.
? Conforms to common terminology under the state and federal emergency management programs and mutual aid compacts.
? Confirms and restates the role of Council in continuity of government during a local or State emergency or disaster.

Because the Ordinance has undergone a major restructuring, it is recommended that Council adopt the changes replacing the existing ordinance chapter with the new formatted chapter rather than as a series of section amendments.
