MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCSC) - Mount Pleasant leaders are expected to hold an emergency meeting regarding face masks.

Mount Pleasant Mayor Will Haynie said he hopes that meeting will take place on Monday. A draft of the ordinance focuses on anyone going to grocery stores or pharmacies but could be more expansive.

An emergency meeting was expected to happen on Friday afternoon, but had been postponed.

“We will postpone today’s emergency Council meeting,” Haynie said earlier in the day. “Though we had a confirmed quorum, the will of Council is to wait until everyone can be present.”

According to Haynie, the Clerk of Council is working with councilmembers to establish a new date and time.
