Whenever, due to an emergency resulting from the effects of enemy attack, or the anticipated
effects of a threatened enemy attack, it becomes imprudent, inexpedient or impossible
to conduct the affairs of local government at the regular or usual place or places
thereof, the governing body of each political subdivision of this state may meet at
any place within or without the territorial limits of such political subdivision on
the call of the presiding officer or any two members of such governing body, and shall
proceed to establish and designate by ordinance, resolution or other manner, alternate
or substitute sites or places as the emergency temporary location, or locations, of
government where all, or any part, of the public business may be transacted and conducted
during the emergency situation. Such sites or places may be within or without the territorial limits of such political
subdivision and within this state.
