It was back to masks at the Fort Bragg City Council meeting this week, as the County’s masking order returned to indoor spaces.

There was some talk before the meeting started about a possible return to hosting the meeting only via web conference, as it was in the height of last year’s pandemic; but no official plans have been made and the city will continue to meet in a hybrid format until further notice.

On the city’s docket Monday evening were numerous issues, perhaps the most pressing of which was the decision to move the city into a Stage 3 drought emergency, which passed unanimously and on City Manager Tabatha Miller’s strong recommendation.
