The group will meet in an effort to "discuss the situation and necessary measures and actions to be taken to protect the public safety, health and welfare."

The "emergency" meeting will convene from within City Hall chambers today at 2, and of course will focus on the coronavirus and what can be done to preserve the public's well being.

Remember, officials across the country are discouraging large gatherings of any sort, so please take advantage of these ways to watch the today's meeting.  It will be broadcast on the City of Ellsworth, Maine Facebook page, on the City's You Tube Channel, and on cable, on Spectrum Channel 1303.
