CC)--The Enid Mayor and Board of Commissioners approved a mask mandate during a four hour meeting Tuesday night. The mandate, approved on a 6-1 vote with Ward 6 Commissioner David Mason voting no, is in effect beginning today.  The vote followed an occasionally contentious public speaking period that heard from members of a large group opposed to the mandate who attended the meeting.  Under the ordinance, all people in Enid must wear a face covering consistent with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines in any indoor location. This requirement does not apply to Vance Air Force Base, Garfield County Court House, school buildings, religious institutions, hospitals and other medical residential facilities. A list of individual exceptions is available online. Rather than being cited specifically for not wearing a mask, people could be ticketed for offenses such as trespassing, disturbing the peace and disorderly conduct. The declaration expires before midnight Feb. 28, 2021.

The Oklahoma Supreme Court will hear Enid City Commissioner Ben Ezzell’s appeal of his recall petition. Ezzell’s appeal has been placed on the fast-track docket. Enid News and Eagle reports no oral presentation will be scheduled for the appeal. The grassroots group Enid Freedom Fighters filed a recall petition on Aug. 4, upset over Ezzell’s actions while in office. City Clerk Alissa Lack certified the petition Aug. 7, verifying that 87 of the 204 collected signatures were sufficient for a recall to be ordered under Enid City Charter rules. Ezzell filed an objection in Garfield County District Court on Aug. 17, and Judge Allison Lafferty, of Blaine County, ruled Nov. 19 that the disputed recall petition was sufficient. Ezzell then filed an appeal, arguing the district court erred when it found the recall petition “implicitly” complied with the Enid City Charter despite the circulators not explicitly stating under oath that the statements contained are believed to be true and the signatures belong to the persons whose name they purport to be. The Ward 3 recall election is currently set for Feb. 9. The court has not yet issued a stay Ezzell also had requested on the election.
