Destin, FL. – This afternoon, Mayor Gary Jarvis and Deputy City Manager Webb Warren, signed a Declaration of State of Emergency for the City of Destin. This will allow City officials to apply for state and federal aid to assist in our response efforts to address the economic impacts of our community due to COVID-19. “By doing this we are in a better position to seek additional resources and take the prudent action necessary to ensure the health, safety and welfare of our City,” said Mayor Gary Jarvis. “This will also allow aid to come in during the recovery phase and support our local businesses and tax-payers.”
