Message From Mankato City Manager Pat Hentges

By |2020-06-02T05:56:19-05:00June 2nd, 2020|

As growing tensions in the Twin Cities, Mankato and across the nation are seen, we understand concerns people may have. Many are aware that a number of rallies were held over the weekend as a result of George Floyd's death and subsequent events. Most people peacefully voiced their concerns; it's unfortunate that some destructive behavior occurred and some businesses were damaged. Thank you to residents who followed the curfew. It takes a team to provide services, so I want to commend public works and facilities, who assisted with road closures and secured damaged buildings; public information and communication, who helped keep [...]

The response will likely be longer than a two-word tweet but I think there's a responsibility to tell us that." A group of protestors showed up at the Governor's residence Friday raising concerns with the state's stay [...]

Water usage in the city of Mankato has gone down since the state enacted a stay at home order.

By |2020-03-20T16:04:01-05:00March 20th, 2020|

The Minnesota Department of Health says there are now 115 positive cases of COVID-19. Kris Ehresman is the infectious disease director of the Minnesota Department of Health.

"This should not be construed to mean that counties that do not have cases are safe or that the 115 cases reported represent the absolute number of cases in our state. Since we have evidence of community spread, it means the virus is circulating in all of our communities." There [...]
