The Abbeville City Council will meet in special session this morning at 11:30 a.m.

On the agenda is a resolution declaring a state of emergency, which will suspend compliance with City ordinances that might delay response, and the state's public bid law. This resolution follows similar declarations on the parish and state level.

Also on the agenda is a discussion of public utility rules and regulations, and how they might impact the city's utilities system.
