A Message from Rory Hoskins, Mayor

Good Evening,

Today Governor Pritzker issued a “Shelter in Place” order.  The order goes into effect on Saturday, March 21, 2020 at 5:00pm and expires April 7th.

For this reason, the lobby area in Village Hall will be closed to the public until further notice.  Staffing at Village Hall will be limited to Monday – Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm for phone calls only.  Please call the Village at 708-366-2323. 

The Police Department non-emergency desk will be available by phone 24 hours a day.   The non-emergency number for the Police Department is 708-366-2425.  Police Officers and Firefighters are not affected by this order and residents are urged to call 911 in the event of an emergency. 

The Village of Forest Park will not enforce the overnight parking ban for the duration of the pandemic emergency.  You may still shop for groceries, get your prescriptions, and pick up dinner (for carry-out only) at your favorite local restaurants.  We ask that you continue to check on your elderly neighbors. 

Thank you for your continued cooperation as we navigate this COVID-19 response.  Please visit our website at www.forestpark.net for more information.

Please be safe and healthy.

Respectfully,

Rory
