We will then fax the completed permit, email a PDF copy of the permit or the permit can be mailed to you via U.S. Mail. We can also make arrangements for pickup at the Police Department.
Emergency services will continue normally and rest assured emergency response will not be compromised. However, at this time child safety seat installations, fingerprinting and other non-life-safety inspections will be delayed.
The Flossmoor Police Department will still take reports via phone or in office, but any in-person reports will be taken via phone or socially distanced, when applicable.
“The increased COVID positivity rate in the public and in the immediate area led us to implement necessary mitigation efforts. We need to slow the spread of COVID, not only for the health of staff, but to ensure the Village can continue to provide essential services to the public,” said Bridget Wachtel, Village Manager. “We are also implementing other internal protocols to protect Village staff and will re-evaluate our mitigation efforts after the new year.”
“We have a responsibility as your local government to follow guidance from the public health officials.” added Mayor Michelle Nelson. “We encourage the community to practice social distancing, mask wearing, and finally, get your booster shot.”
