Survey looks to see if residents will shop in Palmer under a mask mandate

    A new survey been launched in the lead up to the Palmer City Council’s special meeting on Nov. 18 where it will vote on whether to issue a citywide mask mandate – both indoors and outside.

    The online survey is aimed at ascertaining the economic impact of a mask mandate. It asks one simple question: “Are you more or less likely to shop in Palmer if there is a mask mandate?”

    The proposed mandate states in part: “All individuals must wear masks or face coverings over their noses and mouths when they are indoors in public settings or communal spaces outside the home, or outdoors when at a gathering or, when not at a gathering, when 6 feet of physical distancing from non-household members, (or small chosen close group) cannot be maintained.”

    1. The link is wrong in the article. I would paste it here but I doubt comments are allowed to share links. Just click on the link in the article and scroll down a few posts until you see the green survey monkey graphic, that’s where the survey is.

    2. Link goes to FB and most real conservatives have cl8sed accounts. I know I have two years ago saw the control they were starting to exert on free speech.

    3. Amazon will deliver to your door on weekends. Just saying. They tried this in certain cities in texas and everybody started going with amazon. Walmart took huge hits. Academy sports has empty shelves. Most other stores have seen huge profit losses. Now they have loosened up on the mask Nazis. There are a few places that still try to oppress customers but if you throw a big enough fit they give up pretty easily

    4. What scares me the most is that this dictator in the making wants to allow no public notice of the city council. I am shaking my head in wonder at how much we citizens are going to take and when we are going to rise up. I would lead a movement to do so but can’t due to major health problems, but sure would be available to help.

    5. I truly would love to support the Palmer shops but if they are enforcing this illegal act then I will force myself to shop elsewhere. As the parent of a deaf person my daughter relies on lip reading of her closest ones and others she interacts with; this is totally discriminatory. The masks are not the real truth, you are not circulating air properly you are breathing in your own crap. This is an absolutely totalitarian idea and is contradicting human rights and the purpose of democracy by not giving notices to the public. She should be recalled.
