Buffalo City Council

Due to the outbreak of COVID19 and the concern for the well being of our citizens, the Mayor issued a Proclamation declaring a disaster in the City on March 19, 2020 and the City Council of the City approved an ordinance extending the declaration on  March 23, 2020. Therefore, the May 2, 2020 General Election is postponed to November 3, 2020.
