Under the villages mask ordinance all indoor public spaces will require a face mask.

In a quote on the passing of the ordinance vice mayor Sonny Wilkinson said "The number of people and businesses in support of this was overwhelming. This may be one of, if not the most, important votes I'll ever cast as a Council Member. Here's to a healthier and safer tomorrow (or Wednesday)!"
