What we found >
The City readily supported the OPS throughout the demonstration until the final enforcement action. Out of necessity, some City services were cancelled or delayed. However, many City departments adapted to the circumstances and adjusted, as needed, to continue to offer City services. Support for residents was made available through community partners. These services were however not adequately promoted.
We identified challenges that the City faced and areas for improvement that can help the City improve their response to emergencies of a similar nature in the future and provide more support for residents impacted.
