Grand Island Mayor Urges U.S. Ag Secretary To Visit
Grand Island Mayor Roger Steele is asking U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue to visit the city following President Trump's executive order that requires meat processing plants to stay open. The mayor said he wants to explain to Secretary Perdue the problems the city has faced with government orders that have failed to protect the people of Grand Island. There are one-thousand-25 cases of COVID-19 in Hall County, including more than 200 tied to a JBS meat-packing plant. Steele said workers at the plant need to be tested constantly, but they currently don't have the resources to do it.
