MAYOR BOB SCOTT SAYS THE CITY COUNCIL WILL NOT CONSIDER MANDATING THAT SIOUX CITY RESIDENTS WEAR MASKS IN PUBLIC DURING THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC:

OC……..EVENT WE DO THAT. ;18

SCOTT MADE THE COMMENTS AFTER COUNCILMAN PETE GROETKEN MENTIONED THAT SEVERAL PEOPLE HAD CONTACTED HIM TO SAY A MASK MANDATE SHOULD BE ENACTED.

MAYOR SCOTT SAYS THE MANDATE WOULD NEVER SURVIVE A COURT CHALLENGE.

MUSCATINE’S MAYOR ENACTED A MASK MANDATE EARLIER THIS MONTH, BUT THE COUNTY ATTORNEY THERE SAYS IT IS NOT LEGAL AND REFUSES TO PROSECUTE VIOLATORS.
