Officials have found that most Johns Creek residents wear face coverings. Still, during public comments at the Tuesday night meeting, several residents asked for a mask ordinance.
In north Fulton, Sandy Springs has a mask law and Roswell has a directive that encourages people to wear face coverings in public. Alpharetta City Council rejected a mandate in August.
In addition to Bodker, some city council members said they were opposed to a mandate or doubtful that they would vote for it.
Councilwoman Erin Elwood supports a mandate and said she would draft an ordinance for council members to consider at the next work session meeting.
“If cases rise, I think we owe it to our residents to consider it,” Elwood said.
