Deerfield Village Hall Closing to the Public

DEERFIELD – Village of Deerfield is closing Village buildings with the exception of the Police Station at the end of business today through April 1 in response to the coronavirus. All public meetings with the exception of Monday’s Village Board meeting are also canceled through April 1.

The Illinois Department of Public Health reports the most effective strategies to prevent the spread of illness, particularly among the most vulnerable in our community, is through taking pro-active measures now. The Village Board will meet on Monday, March 16, at 7:30 p.m. to consider an ordinance regarding emergency management and disaster authority to enable Village leaders to respond to the emerging coronavirus situation.

Village Hall will be open on Tuesday, March 17, for the Illinois Primary Election, though there will be no in-person Village services.

Plans are in place for water, sewer and public safety services to continue without incident. Non-emergency staff will be available during regular business hours to assist residents by phone, email or by appointment as appropriate. Waste Management collection will continue on schedule. Services such as utility bill payment can all be completed through the Village’s website, via the Village’s drop-box or by mail – Village of Deerfield, 850 Waukegan Road, Deerfield, IL 60015. The Village strongly encourages residents and businesses to use online services as much as possible. The Village’s on-line Citizen Request Tracker has more than 60 categories of service requests. If you need assistance with services such as processing a payment online or via mail, please contact us with any inquiries.

Although the Police Station will remain open to the public, out of an abundance of caution and in order to prevent, or limit, the potential spread of the coronavirus in the workplace the Deerfield Police Department is suspending the following non-emergency services until further notice: fingerprinting, child safety seat inspections, disability parking placards, ride-alongs, station tours and department presentations. Additionally, staff will be unable to accept donated food at the front desk. Parking ticket and alarm billing payments be made online through Illinois e-Pay.

The Village is no longer issuing permits for door-to-door commercial solicitation.

The Village will continue to reassess conditions and provide updates to the community on facility closures and public meetings. Please continue to check the Village’s website, sign up for E-News and follow the Village on social media channels for future updates.

These decisions were made based upon guidance from the CDC, which recommends limiting in-person interactions to prevent exposure and spread of COVID-19. As always, the Village’s top priority is to promote the health and safety of our customers, employees and community.
