The City of Manakto will be voting on a potential ordinance modeled after Minneapolis' misdemeanor penalty and $1,000.00 fine for anyone over the age of two inside a store or public space without a mask.
My district includes part of Mankato, but we all go to Mankato to shop, dine, see a movie, go to the gym, or any one of a hundred activities which would put us at risk of this fine if not properly masked.
The city council's first vote on June 22 was to proceed with drafting an ordinance. A special meeting was called for Monday June 29 to potentially vote on it. The normal period of public input can be shortened to only 72 hours if need be. I would like your input, and would like to share this with Mankato's City Council Members. Entering your address will provide a stronger impact to show you are near Manakto. If you allow, I will email you a summary of the polling data to show the results.
