At a special meeting of the Pocatello City Council, held at 1:00 p.m. today, over three dozen residents showed up to make their voices heard:  No more mask mandates.

Following discussion, the Council determined that they would not institute another mask mandate in the City at this time.

Following this determination, a vote was taken to clarify the sense of the Council not to hold another meeting should certain requirements triggering such meetings be met.  Voting not to implement another meeting on a mask mandate were Council Members Adamson, Cheatum, Ortega, and Stevens.  Opposed were Council Members Bray and Leeuwrik.
