Mayor Alex Morse has issued an Executive Order declaring Racism and Police Violence to be matters of public health that constitute a public health emergency.

The Executive Order includes a list of initial actions that the City is taking to combat this public health crisis. Included in the Executive Order is a provision that provides for a paid day off for City Hall employees this Friday, June 19th, in observance of Juneteenth Independence Day. The Mayor is encouraging local businesses and fellow Mayors to do the same and will be requesting that the Holyoke City Council establish June 19th as a recurring holiday in the City.
