Mayor Encourages Non-Essential Businesses to Close

Kirksville Mayor Zac Burden is encouraging all non-essential operations to show their support and concern for all who live in the community and consider temporarily closing operations at this time. He also encourages all residents to consider staying at home and only traveling around town for the most essential functions. Mayor Burden asks that these considerations be made through at least April 6, the date listed in Governor Parson’s related order. The Mayor said he recognizes that these choices are not without consequence to the local economy and family finances, but believes these actions will increase the ability to effectively fight the coronavirus in our community.
