 Message from the Mayor March 18, 2020 
       Village of Hythe Declares a State of Local Emergency


The Village of Hythe has declared a state of local emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic medical crisis, pursuant to Section 21 of the Emergency Management Act, effective immediately.


In declaring a state of local emergency for the Village of Hythe it provides additional powers to combat the spread of the pandemic, ensure the stability of core services and support the community.  Mayor Brian Peterson shared that, “the Village is working with its municipal neighbours to be proactive and manage the situation strategically with the well-being of our residents at the forefront of our decision.  We encourage people to continue helping and supporting each other in a safe manner and we are thankful to see this happening. There were three main reasons why the Village decided to declare the state of local emergency:

  • We want to enhance our ability to protect and support our residents.

  • We want to be able to help address supply chain issues as they arise (i.e., food, medication, and other supplies).  And,

  • We want to strengthen communication between the various governing bodies (i.e., provincially and locally) to provide to the government to help us mitigate emerging issues as quickly as possible.

Mayor Brian Peterson
