F.S. 22.20
22.20 Emergency continuity of government; political subdivision.
(1) 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 the government of a political subdivision of the state at the normal location of the seat thereof, the governing body of such political subdivision shall, as often as the exigencies of the situation require, by proclamation, declare an emergency temporary location, or locations, for the seat of government at such place, or places within or without the territorial limits of its political jurisdiction, as deemed advisable under the circumstances, and shall take such action and issue such orders as may be necessary for an orderly transition of the affairs of the government of the political subdivision to such emergency temporary location, or locations. Such emergency temporary location, or locations, shall remain as the seat of such government until a new seat of government is established by due processes of the law, or until the emergency is declared to be ended by the Governor and the seat of government is returned to its normal location.
(2) During such time as the seat of government remains at such emergency temporary location, or locations, all official acts now or hereafter required by law to be performed at the seat of government by any officer, agency, department or authority of the political subdivision, including the convening of the governing body thereof in regular, extraordinary or emergency session, shall be as valid and binding when performed at such emergency temporary location, or locations, as if performed at the normal location of the seat of government.
(3) The provisions of this section shall control and be supreme in the event it shall be employed, notwithstanding the provisions of any other law to the contrary or in conflict herewith.
