Message From President Schmitt Regarding COVID-19

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation continues to rapidly evolve, I wanted to make sure you are aware how the Village of Algonquin is responding and taking steps to continue to operate reliably and efficiently.

This is truly an extraordinary event in our lifetimes and cannot be ignored. Governor Pritzker has banned gatherings of 50 or more and further mandated places like restaurants, bars, and fitness centers to be closed for regular business. Here at the Village, we have modified our operation and will continue to supply the critical services you require.

Critical public health and safety operations, including services provided by the Police, Public Works, and Water & Sewer Utilities will not be impacted. Several employees that support the administrative functions normally from the Ganek Municipal Center will perform their work remotely. Residents will be able to access some Village services online and call or email Village staff with questions during regular business hours.

I am confident we will see our way through these unusual circumstances with the spirit of cooperation, integrity, and service that has been a hallmark of our community from the beginning.

We are actively monitoring developments related to the COVID-19 outbreak and will continue to provide updates as information becomes available. Please take commonsense social distancing measures to keep yourself, your family, and your neighbors safe.


John C. Schmitt

Village President
