Skylar Peak Changes His Mind On Mask Ordinance, But Too Late To Make It Effective Now
Written by 991KBU on October 14, 2020
City council member Skylar Peak has changed his mind … and voted yes on a proposal to bring Malibu into the modern world insofar as rule about wearing a mask.
One month ago … Peak voted along with councilman Rick Mullen against an ordinance to impose a modest 50 dollar fine on people who fail to cover their faces.
Every city around Malibu has such an ordinance.
Peak and Mullen said they agreed with those who say COIVD-19 is an overblown intrusion by bog government.
Peak on Monday night voted yes on the ordinance.
But his late change of heart deprived the city council of a four-member supermajority … necessary to make the ordinance take effect immediately.
Instead .. it will come back for a second reading at the next city council meeting … and probably take effect some time in November.
