Roeland Park businesses will get some help enforcing city mask order — here’s how

Roeland Park mask mandate

The Roeland Park City Council approved purchasing and making signs that can be distributed to local businesses notifying customers of the city's mask order. Coucilmembers say they have heard from some business owners who have expressed reservations about trying to enforce the mandate with customers.

Roeland Park will spend up to $1,000 to print signs for business owners in the city to better notify customers to wear face masks indoors in the city.

The City Council on Tuesday unanimously approved authorizing the expense in an amendment to its Aug. 23 face mask resolution, which took effect Aug. 24 and is currently set to expire Oct. 19.
