At Tuesday's Barry County Commissioner's meeting, a Barry County woman went over her three minutes of public comment time and was asked to stop. She refused, and Board Chair Geiger said the meeting was unruly and adjourned the meeting.
The board of commissioners was also looking to withhold funding from the Barry Eaton District Health Department if the department imposed a mask mandate. The board's legal counsel said the board has no authority, because Michigan law does not give County Commissioners the power to act against mask and covid-19 vaccine mandates. West Michigan counties recently dropped mask mandates amid confusion around state budget language.
