Rapid City, SD) — Rapid City is tabling a proposed mask mandate after Mayor Steve Allender’s tie breaking vote. Allender cast his vote in favor of stopping progress on the ordinance after Monday night’s second reading. The move leaves many to wonder what the next step will be. Council members heard a large amount of negative feedback about the proposed ordinance at the meeting, including actions Allender called bullying and threats. Allender says the council should not try a third time at passing a mask mandate.
