The process continues to evolve, as we initially succeeded in delaying a County Council vote.
Unfortunately, the Council made a version of the ordinance law and been granted a money from the state to help enforce it.
But the fight is not over.
The sunset clause we fought for in the order that did end up being issued calls for the Council to determine at their April meeting whether to renew, change, or rescind the order.
That meeting for the County Council will be:
Tuesday, April 13th at 6 PM
Note: Despite our attempts, this is not being acknowledged as a subject eligible for public comment, so you will have to make more general comments or speak on other pertinent issues (free speech, improved immunity/case statistics, etc.).
