    The City of Colleyville has announced that it will not enforce Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley's executive order requiring masks to be worn inside businesses starting at six tonight.

    Judge Whitley says he's disappointed that Mayor Richard Newton and the City Council have turned masks into a political issue; and that given the big spike in COVID-19 cases, the decision to mandate them had to be made.

    Judge Whitley says he has no intentions of asking the Tarrant County Sheriff's Office to enforce the order in Colleyville, since the city will not enforce it.

    KRLD has reached out to Mayor Richard Newton several times for reaction, but so far we have not heard back.
