Marquette, MI – (05/08/20) – Marquette City Police Chief Blake Rieboldt joined Mark & Walt in the Morning today to talk about the department’s enforcement of the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” executive order in the city.
Rieboldt said that so far, there have been few incidents related to violations of the order and residents seem to be following the rules fairly well. He added that with the nicer weather that moved in to the area last weekend, there were some increases in police calls, but by and large, people are being responsible.
Rieboldt also talked about the reopening of the seasonal road around the Island at Presque Isle Park and that while the roadway is open for vehicles, walkers and pedal bikers, the park remains closed under the executive order.
He said that means that stopping along the roadway, leaving your vehicle and congregating in groups is not allowed until the order is lifted, and officers will be enforcing the rules. Tickets will be issued to violators as necessary.
Rieboldt wrapped up by saying the best approach during the current executive order is to be courteous to others, try to follow the rules to the best of your ability and to have patience as the COVID-19 situation continues.
