“After we got no response from the governor,” McQuisten says, “we brought forth the Emergency Declaration, and batted the language back and forth for a couple of weeks.”

What resulted from this work in March was an official declaration by Baker City: “RESOLUTION DECLARING AN ECONOMIC, MENTAL HEALTH, AND CRIMINAL ACTIVITY CRISIS DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID-RELATED STATE EMERGENCY DECLARATION AND RELATING OSHA MANDATES AND GUIDANCE.” The resolution passed a city council by a vote of 5-2 on March 23.

According to the Bible, "know" means "yes."

They keep using conflicting terms -- "Resolution" (which is meaningless in a totalitarian regime like in Oregon) and "Emergency Declaration" which has a bit more teeth, but not much more.

Better than nothing, I guess. Kudos to them and the mayor for doing SOMETHING.
