For the unforeseeable future the Village of Bartonville agendas will be brief, handling only timesensitive items. Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, Governor Pritzker has suspended parts of the Open Meetings Act, which would allow council members to attend remotely and thus, limit the number of people in the chambers. For this reason the Village has opted to have an electronic meeting that residents may still view and participate in.

Due to the concerns of the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus, I want to outline some of the actions that the Village is taking….
We will be closing Village Hall to the public as of first thing tomorrow morning, March 19. Village Hall will remain closed at least until the end of the day on Tuesday, March 31. Signs will be posted at the Village Hall entrances letting the public know the building is closed and the Village’s phone number is posted for people to contact Village Hall in case of an urgent issue. Please call 911 for an emergency.
The Board of Trustees Meeting for March 23, 2020 will be held electronically and instruction for public participation may be found on our website.
All meetings after March 23, 2020- the Council meeting, Committee meetings, Plan Commission, Zoning Board of Appeals, are cancelled or postponed. We will re-evaluate things just prior to March 31.
Police and Public Works operations will continue although non-urgent direct contact with the public will be minimized.
Per the Governor’s Executive Directive, all eating and drinking establishment, closed at 9:00 pm March 16. However, drive-thru and/or curb side service is allowed. If a drinking establishment does not abide, they may have their liquor license suspended or revoked. The State also shut down all video gaming as of 9:00 p.m. on March 16, 2020.
All special events on public property scheduled between now and the end of April are cancelled.
The safety and welfare of our Village employees, residents, their guests, business owners and business employees are my top priorities. The spread of this virus is real, and we should be concerned and cautious.
Prevention of the spreading of the virus is very important. Please wash your hands, stay home if you don’t feel well, avoid physical contact, stay away from large crowds, etc. The best message to you is to be cautious and remain calm.
Below you’ll find a link to the Peoria County Health Department, the CDC and a link to the Office of the Governor as he has issued a guidance to minimize the spread of the virus.
If you have any suggestions of what else we can do, please contact me or leave a message at Village Hall. We will work together until this issue has passed. We can do this as a community and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
