The decision for a mask mandate should be based on the desires and needs of the community. I would engage citizens watch groups to discuss their goals and current capabilities. I would contact the school district as well to assess current needs and risks, and to predict future scenarios. To reach the citizens of our city, I would use an online survey for citizen feedback to assess concerns. I, and the city council, would then make a decision, based on community input, that would satisfy the needs of Belton.
