Let Benicia City Council know you support masks in indoors public spaces!
At next Tuesday’s Council meeting, members will hear a request to implement a face covering mandate for the City of Benicia.
The request, submitted by Mayor Steve Young and Vice Mayor Tom Campbell, would establish a “mask mandate for inside commercial businesses.”
City Council rules require a “two-step process” just to agendize discussion of a new item. The August 17 request is the first of the two steps, requesting the item be agendized for consideration at the August 24 meeting. It’s an important first step – Young and Campbell will need three votes just to bring the item to Council on August 24 for discussion and a vote.
- Here’s the August 17 Council Agenda (see Item 21 A. on page 12)
- Here is Young’s and Campbell’s request, handwritten and marked urgent
- And here is the Staff Report (basically just a description of the two-step process)
