The Decatur City Commission has unanimously approved a local ordinance requiring individuals to wear masks and protective coverings during the COVID-19 pandemic. Ordinance O-20-09 was adopted during a special called meeting on Friday morning, July 10, 2020. The ordinance is effective starting at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 11, and will remain in place until midnight on August 17, 2020, or until it is extended, rescinded, or amended by the City Commission.

The purpose of the ordinance is to help prevent infection by reducing the community spread of COVID-19, a highly contagious and dangerous disease.

The City hopes to achieve the comprehensive use of masks and facial coverings through voluntary compliance. Complimentary masks will be provided to individuals who need them, along with an explanation of the critical need for masks to be worn during the pandemic. Verbal and written warnings will be given as necessary. However, there are civil penalties provided for in the ordinance, starting at limits of $25 for the first offense, $50 for the second offense and $100 for the third and successive offenses.

As part of phase two of the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO), we’ll be holding a series of subject-specific interactive meetings during March and April. This first meeting is Wednesday, March 12, from 7-9 p.m. at Decatur City Hall. We’ll be discussing community character – the look and feel of Decatur’s neighborhoods – and considering what, if anything, we should do to better protect or enhance it.
