100 Year Old City Flag will be on display at Phoenix City Hallhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/phxtv/2149PHXTV11/23/2021 9:00:00 PMhttps://youtu.be/SGGFvXW5IRA100 Year Old City Flag will be on display at Phoenix City Hall<div class="ExternalClassBD395F3A25984F56A4F0EEA3F315207C"><html> <span id="ms-rterangepaste-start"></span> <p style="margin:0px 0px 10px;line-height:1.6;font-size:13.3333px;">In 1921 Phoenix was a small city of 48,000 and residents were optimistic about the future. Phoenicians felt they needed a symbol of their prosperity and so the Phoenix Chamber of Commerce conducted a contest to design what would become the official flag of the city of Phoenix. The winning design is a 52-inch by 66-inch rectangle of heavy grade soft blue silk taffeta with an orange fringe. Embroidered in the center is a Phoenix bird over a gold flame sunburst background. A white ribbon scroll at the bottom is embroidered with the legend, “City of Phoenix, Arizona." Back in 1921 the flag cost $175.</p> <p style="margin:0px 0px 10px;line-height:1.6;font-size:13.3333px;">“Just like the Phoenix Rising, our flag is on display again, reminding us of the history of our great city," said Mayor Kate Gallego, during the unveiling of the flag in the Phoenix City Hall atrium. “It's a time to celebrate the accomplishments of the city of Phoenix. Our history helps us build and move towards our future."</p> <p style="margin:0px 0px 10px;line-height:1.6;font-size:13.3333px;">The city of Phoenix official flag is considered a public record and the Phoenix City Clerk Office is in charge of taking care of it.</p> <p style="margin:0px 0px 10px;line-height:1.6;font-size:13.3333px;">“The city of Phoenix flag was adopted by ordinance on Nov. 23, 1921 and it has been under the care of the City Clerk Office," said City Clerk Denise Archibald. “We ensure that the flag is kept in a safe and secure environment that's conducive to its preservation and conservation. Now we are here celebrating the 100-year anniversary of this flag. It will be on display at City Hall in the atrium between Nov. 23 and the end of December. Then it will come back to the City Clerk Office for safekeeping. I believe next year we will go ahead and try to maintain the flag, as we usually do, and have some conservation efforts completed on it just to make sure that it's always preserved and in a good state."</p> <p style="margin:0px 0px 10px;line-height:1.6;font-size:13.3333px;">Much like the mythical Phoenix bird, the first official city of Phoenix flag has risen again from the dust of time.</p> <p style="margin:0px 0px 10px;line-height:1.6;font-size:13.3333px;">“I think the flag is beautiful," said Archibald. “The history is rich and we're just proud to be able to keep it safe and in good condition and will continue to do so for many years to come. I'm just excited that we have this opportunity to celebrate its 100-year anniversary."​​<br></p> <span id="ms-rterangepaste-end"></span> <br> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/phxtvVideophxtvPHXTV#historic #flag #phoenixphoenix, flag, historic, city clerk, mayorPHXTV602-495-5493https://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/60/PHXTV2.pngcityofphoenixaz

City of Phoenix Vaccine Mandate Pausedhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/city-manager/2162City Manager12/7/2021 10:00:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/2162/Newsroom_Vaccine_Bottles.jpgCity of Phoenix Vaccine Mandate Paused<div class="ExternalClass80C6373E36D04EF2BDC3A9E18EA4C696"><p> The city of Phoenix Tuesday announced it has paused plans to implement a federal mandate requiring all city employees be vaccinated against COVID-19. This decision comes after a series of legal challenges and a ruling Tuesday from a federal judge in Georgia which temporarily halts the COVID-19 vaccine mandate for federal contractors nationwide.<br></p><p>“As we've faced the COVID-19 pandemic, employee safety and maintaining essential city services have been our priority. In meeting those demands, the one constant has been our ability to be flexible. Today's decision further reflects that flexibility," said City Manager Jeff Barton. “Since we first were alerted that city employees would be subject to the <a target="_blank" href="https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/presidential-actions/2021/09/09/executive-order-on-ensuring-adequate-covid-safety-protocols-for-federal-contractors/">Presidential Executive Order​</a> mandating the vaccine for federal contractors, we have promised to monitor legal challenges and adjust accordingly. While I continue believe the vaccination is the best defense against COVID-19, we owe it to our employees to allow the legal process to play out."<br></p><p>Last month it was announced that because the city of Phoenix is a Federal contractor, the COVID-19 vaccine would be required for all employees by January 18, 2022 as outlined in Presidential Executive Order 14042. While there has not been a final legal decision, any implementation within the city is on hold pending the outcome of the court cases.<br></p><p>Although the implementation of the vaccine requirement is on hold, employee safety remains a top priority. The city offers free COVID vaccines, booster shots, and testing options to employees and their families.<br></p> ​<br></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/citymanagerNews
