The ordinance also extends the sale of packaged beer and wine with curbside pickup or to-go orders for restaurants in the city of Alpharetta for 30 days. Alcoholic beverage delivery is still prohibited.
Greenways, trails and the like are still open for public use despite active areas of parks being closed.
"The purpose of the ordinance in its current format was really to give us an opportunity to not necessarily have to come back with another ordinance on a weekly basis, just to give some flexibility," City Attorney Sam Thomas said.
City Administrator Bob Regus said during the meeting that he and his staff are working on a document outlining the phased reopening of city facilities in five separate phases, but no official date has been set for the first phase of reopening to begin. He said he is optimistic that they could get the process going by mid- to late May but cannot guarantee that.
The ordinance can be repealed by a council vote at any time should council members deem it necessary but will automatically be repealed after 30 days.
