The Superior City Council is working through a possible mask resolution in the city.

It would require people to cover their faces when indoors at a place that is accessible to the public or on public transportation.

Mayor Jim Paine offered his input on the distinction between public and private sections of businesses. 

"The way I read this, the way I think we wrote it, is that once you leave the public space of say the Walmart floor and go into the back warehouse of Walmart, that is no longer accessible to the public and no longer covered by this resolution," Paine said. 

Superior used the mask ordinance passed in Rochester, Minn., as a jumping off point. But it may be amended at next Monday's meeting. 

Councilor Brent Fennessey suggested a way to put all businesses on equal footing.

"I think the most successful way for it to be accepted by the public and the messaging is consistent is if we created some kind of signage for the businesses to put up," Fennessey said. 

Councilors are expected to vote next Monday, July 21. It would go into effect July 27.
