In compliance with guidelines designed to curb the spread of COVID-19, the Village has enacted several new measures to help keep residents safe, Frankfort Mayor Jim Holland announced during the March 16 Frankfort Village Board of Trustees meeting.

While most Village services are continuing to operate normally, the Village has curtailed building inspections and water line flushes, and meeting rooms will temporarily  be unavailable for homeowners associations or other groups, he said. The Village is also asking residents to pay their water bills either by mail, electronically, or through the dropbox located outside the Village Administration Building at 432 W. Nebraska St.

“I am pleased to report that institutions all around Frankfort appear to be following the State and federal guidelines to help control the spread of COVID-19,” Holland said. “Places where people gather and might inadvertently spread the virus are either closing or taking steps to provide social separation and disinfecting, as the medical experts are recommending.”

Village events for the next eight weeks, including the Earth Day Celebration and the spring Frankfort Country Market, have been canceled, and the Plan Commission meetings scheduled for March 26 and April 9 have also been canceled. While Village Board meetings are still slated to proceed as scheduled, seating has been rearranged to follow social distancing guidelines, Holland said.

“All of us are being impacted by COVID-19,” Holland said. “Some will be impacted more than others. I know that Frankfort residents will think about ways to help their families, their friends and their neighbors with this issue.”
