Emergency Services:

Emergency services will continue normally, unless otherwise advised, but at this time child safety seat installations, fingerprinting and other non-life-safety inspections will be delayed.

The Flossmoor Police Department will still take reports via phone or in office, but any in-person reports will be taken socially distanced, when applicable. 

"All of us have a personal responsibility to do our part during this national emergency regardless of whether you agree or disagree with the numbers or the government’s mitigation efforts. We need to continue practicing social distancing, wearing masks, washing hands and using hand sanitizer, and limiting our travel to only essential business," said Mayor Paul Braun. "The Village will continue to do what is necessary to provide essential public services no matter what. We realize that some service changes will be inconvenient but are very important and necessary to reduce the risk of virus exposure to the public and our employees, so that we can ensure essential services continue to be maintained."
