HURON - Huron city commissioners met Saturday morning to hold a second reading of the repeal of Ordinance Number 2207, commonly known as the COVID-19 ordinance. After debate that got heated at times, the commissioners split their vote 2-2 with Mayor Paul Aylward casting the deciding "nay" vote to defeat the second reading, leaving the ordinance in place.
Commissioners then considered a proposed resolution, Resolution Number 2020-08. The resolution was amended in wording before a unanimous adoption by the commission.
The resolution goes into effect immediately upon passing and opens businesses previously closed by Ordinance No. 2207 with restrictions in place for ALL businesses. Full details of the resolution and the individual restrictions for different types of businesses can be found at the City of Huron link to the resolution.
More details to come in Monday's edition of The Plainsman.
