As The Village continues to navigate through this difficult, unprecedented time, we find ourselves faced with yet another challenge. A rolling positivity rate of over 8% for three consecutive days, has triggered enhanced mitigations for our region. These mitigations include the cessation of indoor dining in bars and restaurants. The Village of Bartonville has actively encouraged our residents and business owners to practice the safety measures issued by the IDPH and outlined in the Governor’s mandate. In an effort to protect the health and safety of everyone, we will continue to do so.
That being said, we are also mindful of protecting the business owners, and their employees, within the Village who rely on this income for their personal and business survival. In addition, many of our elderly residents rely on these businesses as a resource for daily meals. As a result, I will take no steps to forcefully close or discourage businesses from operating in the mode they so desire. Although taking actions contrary to the Governor’s mandate is discouraged by the Village, the Village will take no actions unless required to do so by either a court order or directive from the Peoria County State’s Attorney’s office. I also advise all business owners who operate in opposition of the Governor’s mandate to consult with their own legal counsel.
As previously stated, I respectfully ask and strongly encourage all business owners, residents and business patrons to diligently follow the Governor’s mandate and the Covid-19 Protocol Guidelines issued by the IDPH which includes the wearing of masks and social distancing at all public venues. I would also like to encourage business patrons to choose alternative options such as carryout as opposed to the dine in option for meals.
Leon Ricca, Mayor
Village of Bartonville
