Lewiston Bumps up Date for Mask Mandate Vote, Changes Time to 3:15 p.m. PST

By • November 18, 2020

Idaho Dispatch has received information that another city is voting on a mask mandate this week.

The city of Lewiston is also going to be discussing and possibly voting on a mask mandate tomorrow after adding it to their agenda and changing the time to 3:15 p.m. Pacific Standard Time instead of the normal 6:00 p.m. PST.

Originally, the Lewiston city council was supposed to meet on November 23rd to have the discussion and the meeting was to be held at 6:00 p.m. PST that evening.

Idaho Dispatch has reached out to the Mayor and City Council of Lewiston to find out why the change in date and time was made. We have not yet received a response but will update the article if one is provided.

Lewiston has attempted to pass a mask mandate before but has so far been unsuccessful.

Idaho Dispatch has also been unsuccessful in finding the proposal online. We did reach out to the Lewiston city clerk to find out if they had the proposal for us to read.

The clerk was not available but Idaho Dispatch did leave a message with our email for the clerk to email the proposal to.

Citizens wishing to email the Mayor or City Council to express their support or opposition to a mask mandate can do so using the link here.

Should Lewiston implement a mask mandate or let citizens decide if they want to wear a mask or not? Let us know in the comments below.
