Emporia city commissioners have COVID-19 mitigation strategies in mind when they have an action session Wednesday.


Commissioners will discuss whether to extend the city's face covering protocol, currently set to expire Saturday. All other aspects of the mask mandate would remain unchanged. This follows the Lyon County Commission's decision last week to keep the countywide mask mandate in place untouched until further notice while adjusting the mass gathering limit and social distancing methods to make them strong recommendations.

In ordinance discussions not related to COVID-19, commissioners will look at possible adjusting the city code on the times alcohol can be sold and consumed at drinking establishments, private clubs and catering facilities. Currently, alcohol use is prohibited in these locations from 2 am to 9 am. Commissioners will look at adjusting that time from 2 am to 6 am.

In other business, commissioners will discuss a potential tax exemption for property improvements over the past two years at Glendo. Commissioners will also announce several board appointments during the meeting.

Commissioners will meet at 1:30 pm Wednesday at the Municipal Court Room.
