In response to the governor’s disaster proclamation on March 9, many communities and counties across Illinois issued their own emergency declarations.

On March 17, the Village Board approved Ordinance 1936-20 granting the Mayor temporary executive powers to respond to the COVID-19 epidemic. In line with the powers granted to him, Mayor Pruyn declared a State of Emergency (PDF) on March 18. Understanding that the pandemic has caused unprecedented fiscal harm to residents and businesses, Mayor Pruyn issued several executive orders aimed at alleviating financial pressures and code regulations on residents and businesses alike. Each of the below orders are reviewed and ratified by Resolution by the Board of Trustees, who are working diligently on maintaining the health and vitality of our community.
