Grandview Mayor Leonard Jones needs every citizen to honor this order. “I know County Executive White made this tough decision because lives depend on it,” explained Mayor Jones. “This is the right thing to do and it’s our job as citizens of Grandview and Jackson County to do what’s best for the greater good. Stay home and remember if we all do what’s being asked of us, the sooner our lives can return to normal.”
