Doraville Council Will Vote on Mask Ordinance Tonight 

COVID-19 cases in the City of Doraville's two zip codes (30340 and 30360) have more than tripled since mid-May. In the midst of this public health emergency, it has become clear to me that we are not going to get ahead of this pandemic unless mask-use becomes much more widespread.

Because of this, at the council's meeting tonight (7/13),  I will be introducing an amendment to our emergency ordinance that will require the use of face coverings inside most businesses as well as outside when social distancing is not feasible. By doing this, I hope we can prevent another lock-down and help save the local economy from additional stress while also saving lives.

This is a watchdog committee that is meant to ensure all parties are meeting their obligations under the agreement.

We need some new members for this committee, so I am calling on any interested parties to apply. Completed applications should be sent to . The application can be found at
