As per Illinois Governor J B Pritzker Executive Order No. 18 of April 1, 2020 the Shelter-In-Place; the limiting of public gatherings to no more than 10 people; the suspension of certain provisions of the Open Meetings Act; and other provisions have been extended until April 30, 2020. Therefore…..
County Board Committee Meetings for April are canceled. The Full Board Meeting on April 14 will be conducted electronically per the following plan:
The County Clerk; Deputy Clerk; Board Chairman; Finance Manager; and EMA Director will be assembled in the Board Room on April 14, 2020 to conduct the meeting. Board Members will participate via the Call-In process. There will be a short agenda primarily to ensure the essential County functions will continue. No one other than those named above will be allowed to be present at the meeting. The public will be able to access the meeting via the same call-in procedure used by Board Members and the meeting will be recorded for public consumption. Call-In instructions will be published during the coming week. Members of the public may submit comments via email to the County Board office in advance to be read at the meeting. There will also be an opportunity for public comment for those participating during the call-in meeting.
The Administrative Center and Highway Department Offices remain closed to the General Public until further notice. Essential County functions are being maintained. Those who need to avail themselves of the functions are asked to contact the appropriate Department and arrange an appointment or other means to complete their business.
We will continue to monitor all developments closely and act accordingly with the hope that things will return to normal soon. Until that time we must follow the leadership of those at the State and Local Levels using Social Distancing and other requirements for the Safety and Well-Being of everyone.
