The Mankato City Council approves extending an emergency ordinance for the closure of city-owned facilities through July 13.

This includes closures of park facilities, campgrounds, and the Mayo Clinic Health System Event Center.

The council says they will revisit the decision May 26 and may lift the extension pending guidelines from Gov. Tim Walz and then when the cost of sanitizing facilities has been determined.

 

They also extended waiving late fees and parking fines.
