Itasca Community Leaders Stand United

Itasca home page

Dear Village of Itasca, As a nation, a state, and a village, we face an unprecedented event in our lifetimes. The concern you have is shared by your neighbors and friends, your co-workers, and every person in Itasca.

While no one knows how long this will last, there will be a day when we emerge from this crisis stronger as a people.

It is perfectly normal to be concerned. Know that here in Itasca your community leaders are doing everything in their power to make good decisions to keep you and your family safe. We are following the best guidance from the CDC and other health officials. We are closely monitoring changes in recommendations, while at the same time examining how to best equip Itasca for a brighter future. 

We want you to know that even with the Governor’s order to stay at home, the Village of Itasca remains open and operational, but in a scaled-back capacity. Leaders from the Police Department, Fire District, Public Works, Park District, Library, School District, and Village continue to work together to provide essential services to our residents while following CDC recommended guidelines for public interaction.   

We are working closely with county and state leaders, health officials, and emergency management agencies to ensure we are taking all recommended steps to keep you safe and to provide the services you need from local government during this extraordinary time.  

We stand united in urging all Itasca residents to observe the Stay-At-Home Order and to follow CDC recommendations on hygiene and social distancing.  

Please call and check on your neighbors. Consider volunteering or donating funds to the Itasca Food Pantry as they provide a critical safety net for the growing number of vulnerable children, seniors and families in our community. 

While the future is unknown, the Village will continue to take every appropriate action to respond to this global pandemic. We stand together committed to face this crisis head-on, and we will do everything possible to lead Itasca through this extraordinary event. For now, let us take a moment to find the small blessings, spend time with your family, call old friends, reconnect with those closest to you.

Thank you and take care of each other,
