DECATUR, Ala. – The Decatur City Council talked about a possible face mask covering ordinance. This comes one week after the council passed a resolution for facial coverings. The resolution does not impose a fine for not following an order, while an ordinance would.
During a meeting last Tuesday, several people spoke out against the proposed ordinance. City leaders say others spoke in favor of it through e-mail.
The city council met in a work session starting at 4 p.m., with the regular council meeting starting at 6.
The counsel went through the draft of an example ordinance line by line to make changes that best fit the City of Decatur.
The council plans to reconvene for a special called meeting on Wednesday to potentially propose and vote on an ordinance.
