Hillsborough County Extends State Of Local Emergency 

Hillsborough County Administrator Bonnie Wise has signed today an executive order extending a state of local emergency under authority granted by the County’s Emergency Management Ordinance and Chapter 252, Florida Statutes.

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. – Hillsborough County Administrator Bonnie Wise has signed today an executive order extending a state of local emergency under authority granted by the County’s Emergency Management Ordinance and Chapter 252, Florida Statutes.

The original order went into effect on Sept. 24 as what eventually became Hurricane Ian approached Florida and was extended on Oct. 1. Today’s second extension is in effect through Oct. 14. 

A state of local emergency can be in effect for only seven days, unless rescinded or extended.

The emergency declaration gives the County Administrator and emergency managers the ability to quickly take certain actions to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of the community, and provides a path for federal reimbursement of certain expenses.
