This should go in "general bad news" but there is more chance of people seeing it here, and it is important that nobody misses it.

With less than 18 hours’ notice, the Champaign, Illinois city council passed an emergency powers ordinance Friday morning, which Mayor Deborah Frank Feinen signed. The ordinance grants sweeping powers to the mayor, including the ability to order a ban on selling, transferring, or even giving away firearms or ammunition.
Some would-be authoritarians at the home of the University of Illinois think they can suspend citizens’, students’, and visitors’ Second Amendment rights on the whim of a small town mayor during a national emergency.

But wait, there’s much, much more.
The measure gives the mayor the power to:
Order the closure of all liquor stores, taverns and private clubs. Or portions thereof where alcohol is consumed.
Ban all alcohol sales by any wholesaler or retailer.
Ban the sale of fuels except to fill motor vehicles. Need gas for your generator? Sorry.
“Order the control, restriction and regulation within the City by rationing, issuing quotas, fixing or freezing prices, allocating the use, sale or distribution of food, fuel, clothing and other commodities, materials, goods or services or the necessities of life”

Unfortunately, this is only the first to attempt this. I have heard that ABQ NM is trying the same thing, that meeting is tonight in a closed session.
