§ 51.76  DURATION; CHANGE OR EXTENSION OF STAGE OF EMERGENCY.
   The Plan is effective on a year-round basis.  Upon the recommendation of the City Administrator, the Mayor may upgrade or downgrade the stage of emergency when the criteria identified in § 51.77 trigger such an upgrade or downgrade.  Any change in the order must be implemented in the same manner, and must meet all notice requirements prescribed in § 51.75.  The Mayor may declare any stage of the Plan specified herein to be effective for a period not to exceed 90 days.  Thereafter, the City Council may, upon recommendation of the Mayor and the City Administrator, extend the duration of the particular stage for additional time periods up to, but not to exceed, 120 days each.  The Mayor may terminate the particular stage in the manner prescribed in § 51.75, when the City Administrator determines the conditions creating the emergency no longer exist and advises the Mayor accordingly.
