“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.”
