Wow what a difference between Arkansas City and Winfield. I live in Ark City and am very disappointed in our city commission that wouldn't even put face masks on its agenda or just make a statement encouraging wearing face mask. Maybe the Wilson park project is more important.
While Winfield makes it mandatory to save lives to wear mask, and Ark City does not. Winfield has an award-winning hospital, Ark City has one that is barely afloat. Winfield downtown is open for business, Ark City downtown is empty and now reaches to the north end of town. I for one really appreciate Winfield for standing up to keep the community safe. I for one am and will be taking the short drive to Winfield to spend my money.
