If attending in person, members of the public are required to stay six feet from any other person in the room. Room attendance will be limited to no more the ten people at any one time with attendees being rotated in if needed. Entrance to the Board Meeting will be through the door located at the back of Village Hall.

In March, Illinois Gov. Pritzker announced a temporary change to the state’s Open Meetings Act that waives the requirement that a physical quorum of elected officials be present to hold a public meeting. Remote participation for elected officials, staff, and the public is expected to continue until the order is lifted.
