Rogers City Council votes to repeal mask ordinance


ROGERS, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — UPDATE: The Rogers City Council has voted 8-0 to repeal the city’s mask ordinance.

A press release from the city previously said the ordinance would end at 3:43 p.m May 27. However, Rogers Mayor Greg Hines says the ordinance will instead end at 3:34 p.m. May 27.

ROGERS, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Leaders in city of Rogers will be discussing whether or not its mask ordinance will stay in place.

A proposal to repeal it will be presented at the next city council meeting.

If passed, the ordinance would end May 27 at exactly 3:43 p.m. when classes let out for the summer in the Rogers School District.

That’s because the district chose to finish the school year with masks in place.

Until the ordinance is repealed, the city plans to keep it in place as long as Gov. Asa Hutchinson’s emergency executive order is active.
