The Village has been monitoring local and federal mandates during this critical time. The latest mandates will have a devastating effect on our local businesses.
The Governor's Executive Order mandating all Illinois restaurants and bars to cease dine-in services went into effect Monday evening until March 30. I believe it will be extended. Please remember that these businesses can continue to provide delivery, drive-thru and curb-side services.
It is very important that we support our local businesses as much as possible. They are always there for us, constantly giving back. During this mandate when you may normally go out, please call or go online and order from our local restaurants. Some may have deliveries, others curbside pickup.
You can also order take-out inside the restaurant as long as you keep social distance.
You can also support them by sharing on-line posts with your friends.
The President has also asked that we don’t meet in groups of 10 or more. Please remember this when meeting with friends and family events. The next few months will be challenging for all of us.
The Village Hall will still be open for business as of this writing. The Village Board has been given legal authority to have trustees call-in to meetings to limit the amount of people in attendance. If agendas are light, the meeting will be postponed.
To limit the exposure to our employees, if you have a question, please call. If you need to go to the village hall or police department, please make sure you are healthy and not running a temperature. We will work with you any way possible to protect you and our employees during this crisis.
