Fox 25 Michigan: The City of Perry issued an administrative order saying it will not have strict enforcement of Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s executive orders.
Mayor James Huguelet said the city will not assist other law enforcement agencies in the strict enforcement of the executive orders.
“It is past time that government leadership treat the people of Michigan and of Perry like the responsible, thoughtful adults they are. I write today to state clearly my opposition to some of Governor Whitmer’s executive orders. While I understand and share her desire to protect the public, I question some of the restrictions she has imposed as overstepping her executive authority. She has created a vague, overreaching framework of emergency laws that only confuse Michigan’s responsible, thoughtful citizens,” said Mayor James Huguuelet.
“Our focus needs to be on reopening our city and getting people back to work. We also need to be aware that the virus can be deadly and that we need to continue to practice social distancing, washing of hands, wearing of masks as well as other medically recommended measure. Allowing those without paychecks back to work is imperative to the economic success and well being of our community,” said Huguelet.
