Masks required in city’s buildings

The City of North Liberty now requires masks in its public, indoor spaces. These spaces include the Community Center, City Hall and Council Chambers. This requirement will be in effect while Johnson County sees substantial and high levels of community coronavirus transmission.

This policy, in line with public health guidance from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Johnson County Public Health, is targeted to help protect the community from the highly contagious Delta variant of the virus that causes COVID-19, which is responsible for increasing hospitalizations, including among children.

While the rapid spread of the COVID-19 Delta variant is concerning, vaccines provide excellent protection against serious illness and help protect others who are vulnerable to the disease. The best way to protect yourself, your family and your community from COVID-19 is to get a free vaccination, available for those 12 and older at local pharmacies and hospitals. Visit to find a site for a free, safe and effective vaccination convenient for you.

The city’s approach to its public health policies are a dial, not a switch, as we provide targeted mitigation in line with guidance from our public health partners. As guidance and conditions change, we will update our policies.

‘There is a Time to Get Involved and a Time to Leave.’

Mayor Terry Donahue announced during the North Liberty City Council meeting on July 27, 2021, that he would not be a candidate for re-election for the office. He offered the following statement:

There is a time to get involved and a time to leave. After more than 40 years of being involved in city government in the state, it is time to move on. I hold these years of service as a total learning experience in serving two communities in Iowa.

If asked what my legacy might be, I suggest that North Liberty is the legacy. There have been great times, and also trying times, we have all experienced. We became a better, stronger community because of them.

Nothing is ever accomplished by one person. It is the community that accomplishes the tasks that need to be addressed.  And I thank the community for allowing me to serve them as a councilperson and then as mayor.
