City of Ramsey votes to stop enforcing Gov. Walz’s mask madates

Leaders in the Minnesota city of Ramsey, northwest of the Twin Cities, have voted to stop enforcing Gov. Tim Walz’s coronavirus mask mandate with proponents arguing it infringes on an individual’s constitutional rights.

It was not immediately clear what liability the city might face as a result of the 4-3 City Council vote Tuesday night which was discouraged by city attorney Joe Langel. He warned members not to ignore the executive order.

The League of Minnesota Cities said Ramsey might be the first city to pass such a measure.
