City of Minneapolis Budget changes effecting NCR and neighborhood

NCR was tasked with cutting 15% of our operating budget, while limiting the impact of these cuts on the community as much as possible. On July 24th, the Mayor and the City Council adopted a revised budget for the remainder of this fiscal year that included a $750,000 cut to neighborhood organization funding alongside cuts to the Neighborhood and Community Relations Department (NCR)’s operating budget, programs and grants.

Statewide mask mandate in effect

Minnesotans are required to wear a face covering in indoor businesses and indoor public settings. Researchers have advocated for masking, calling it a simple and effective step to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

The State regulation reinforces Mayor Jacob Frey’s emergency regulation requiring people in Minneapolis to wear cloth face masks or coverings when they are in an indoor place of public accommodation.

Businesses are not required to provide masks to customers or employees themselves, though employers shall be required to mandate the use of masks by their staff. Non-compliance should be reported through 311.

Watch and share this Minnesota Department of Health video.

For information and resources on the mask mandate, including frequently asked questions, visit mn.gov/COVID19.
