BREVARD COUNTY • VIERA, FLORIDA – The Board of Brevard County Commissioners held a meeting on Tuesday, June 30, to discuss mask regulations for Brevard County businesses proposed by Chair Bryan Lober.
After over two hours of public comment, which including more than 50 citizens adding their mostly anti mandatory masking opinion, the proposal failed to garner any support from the commission.
Commission Lober then proposed passing a proclamation that would suggest to area business owners to display face mask notices stating their particular face mask policy.
After much discussion, this proposal passed 4-1 with Commissioner John Tobia being the dissenting vote.
Commissioners Rita Pritchett, Curt Smith, Kristine Isnardi and Chairman Lober voted in favor of the proclamation.
The meeting agenda also included discussion on CARES Act funding for Economic Support Programs, and also discussion related to the potential for a face covering or a face mask policy, following a recent upward trend in positive coronavirus tests in the county.
The meeting was held with public comments from the Board of County Commissioners Chambers on the first floor, with County Commissioners meeting in the Florida Room on the third floor of the Viera Government Center in Viera.
