Orland Park, IL – (March 19, 2020)- In an effort to share information with residents and businesses, daily communication from the Office of the Mayor will be made available on the Village’s website, YouTube channel and social media accounts.

Residents and business owners are invited to submit questions to be addressed in the update to publicinfooffice@orlandpark.org. The mayor will address as many inquiries as possible each day.

“I will do everything I can to make sure the Orland Park community stays informed, is provided the assistance they need and never feels out of touch with Village happenings and services,” said Mayor Keith Pekau. “While the Village has made the important decision to close many Village buildings and postpone programming for the safety of residents and staff, please be assured that all essential services are still operating.”

The Orland Park Police Department and Fire Protection District are operating normally, and are prepared to respond to any call for service or situation that may develop.

“Police service will not be affected at all,” said Police Chief Tim McCarthy. “We are healthy, fully staffed and well equipped to handle any circumstance or situation that comes our way.”

Critical communication and coordination with County, State and Federal partners is in place and plans for a situation like this are developed, clear, concise and fully executable.

“I assure you that the Orland Park Fire Protection District remains here to serve during the outbreak just as effectively and thoroughly as we were prior to the onset,” said Orland Park Fire Protection District Chief Michael Schofield.
