Lakefield City Council Won’t Enforce Governor Walz’s Stay At Home Order

A small town in Southwestern Minnesota has decided enough is enough.

Last night, the Lakefield City Council voted to take a stand against Gov. Tim Walz’s stay-at-home order and temporary closure of bars, restaurants and other places of public accommodation in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The City Council pledged to not direct any city resources to enforcing the orders, according to the Lakefield Standard.

The council passed a resolution affirming the city as a “constitutional and business-friendly community” on a 3-2 vote following a lengthy and sometimes heated discussion.

To my knowledge, this vote represents the first city in the state to declare that it will not enforce the Stay at Home orders. More cities in Greater Minnesota will likely follow suit.
