COVID-19 Update 

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

On, March 12, 2020, Governor Pritzker announced new guidance regarding implementation of social distancing measures to slow the speed of the spread of COVID-19.  In a recent update, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) has advised that the best way to prevent the illness is to avoid being exposed to the virus.  The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person between people who are in close contact with one another and through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes.

Early information shows that some people are at higher risk of getting sick from the illness which includes older adults, and people who have chronic medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes or lung disease.  Basic protective measures against the new virus are to: wash your hands frequently; maintain social distancing (a minimum of three to six feet) and to not attend gatherings of more than 10 people; avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth; practice respiratory hygiene; seek medical care early if you have a fever, cough or difficulty breathig; and stay informed.  If you are at higher risk for serious illness from COVID-19 please contact your health care provider about additional steps you may be able to take to protect yourself.

As we enter Phase 3 of the States 5-Phased Plan, the villages Finance Office, Building Department and Public Works Department will reopen to the public as of June 1, 2020. The offices will be open from Monday-Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM.  The offices will reopen following the recommended guidelines for social distancing and face coverings.

Please view the constant updates on the village website for more information regarding contact information for Village Services.  Links have also been provided on the website to the Illinois Department of Public Health and other resources that are updated on a regular basis.  If you need assistance navigating our website feel free to contact the Village Hall at 708-458-2520, or the Building Department at 708-458-2130.
