Mayor Comments Not Reason For Remote Meeting

Tonight’s Nevada City City Council meeting will be done remotely, but not because of the mayor’s mask controversy. Reinette Senum, in a Facebook post over the weekend, created a bit of a firestorm when she wrote that Governor Newsom’s mask mandate “was not a law”.

Tonight’s meeting starts at 6:30, and will be done remotely, and will be streamed live and televised on the local government channel.
