As the concern for the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to grow, please know that the Village is closely monitoring the situation. As of April 3rd, there were 3,815 cases in Chicago and 2,658 cases in surrounding Cook County. We urge you to take an abundance of caution to help contain and limit the spread of the Coronavirus. Let’s unite in this fight!
Street maintenance parking enforcement will be temporarily suspended until further notice. Public works will continue working throughout the town, so residents are being asked to obey their street maintenance signs when practical. All street maintenance parking restrictions are suspended until further notice, but other parking related regulations remain in effect.
River Grove adjudication court scheduled for Wednesday April 1, 2020 has been postponed. The new date is Wednesday May 6, 2020.
In an effort to limit person-to-person contact with police officers and police administrative staff, residents are being asked to call in non-emergency issues over the phone or email those issues to the police department. An officer will be assigned to return the call, to the reporting person, and that officer will advise what, if any, further police action will be taken regarding the matter. All non-emergency issues should be called into the communications center at (708) 453-2121. If you wish to send an email message regarding a non-emegency issue, please use the newly established police email address dedicated for non-emergency reports only: RGPD311@rivergroveil.gov.
When you call or email, please provide the following information:
Calls will be returned in a timely manner and in the order in which they were received. For practical purposes, non-emergency issues should be considered a matter that does not require the immediate presence of a police officer.
Enforcement of restaurant closings will be coordinated according to direction from the state.
Police responses have been altered and officers are not to enter buildings on a call unless requested by fire department.
The police department has posted the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) notice on the front door of the police station along with directions on what to do if you require non-emergency police assistance.
Government websites such as the Centers For Disease Control and the Illinois Department of Public Health have reliable information regarding common sense responses to this fluid situation, if you want to review them for your personal information.
Your health and safety remain our top priority! Stay well and please watch the Village website and Facebook page for additional updates.
Thank you,Mayor David B. Guerin
