At the guidance of public health officials, the Village of  Richmond is taking preventative measures to help limit the exposure of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).

In order to help limit the spread of COVID-19 in the Village’s public facilities to this disease, effective on Tuesday, May 26,2020 and extending until further notice, the Village Hall (located at 5600 Hunter Drive) asks your cooperation when entering Village Hall. Please wear face covering, limit one person in lobby at a time, only one family member and follow directional markings for entering and exiting.

For those residents that have utility bill payment arrangements, we would prefer those payments be made over the phone by calling 815-678-4040.

Richmond Police Department has made the following announcement effective today, Monday, March 16, 2020:

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you may notice some changes in the way the Richmond Police Department conducts our operations. These procedures are being put in place to protect the public and our personnel alike during this time. Rest assured, our personnel will continue to be visible in the community, and will continue to provide a high level of emergency response when needed. Changes you may notice include:

  1. Officers may take complaints via telephone when it is not necessary for the officer to meet with the complaint/victim in person, and/or examine a crime scene.
  2. Instead of talking to a Records Clerk/Officer thought the Police window at the Police Department, we will ask visitors (with non-emergencies) to dial a direct number to speak with Officers via telephone. (815-678-4163) If an Officer is not available, please leave a message, and your call will be returned.
  3. Department tours and ride-a-long’s will not be granted at the time.

If you have any questions, please contact the Richmond Police Department at (815)678-4163. We wish everyone a safe few weeks while we all deal with this serious issue.

Important 2020 Census Information!

Impact in Your Community

School lunches. Plans for highways. Support for firefighters and families in need. Census results affect your community every day.

Shaping Your Future

The results of the 2020 Census will help determine how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding flow into communities every year for the next decade. That funding shapes many different aspects of every community, no matter the size, no matter the location.

Think of your morning commute: Census results influence highway planning and construction, as well as grants for buses, subways, and other public transit systems.

Or think of your local schools: Census results help determine how money is allocated for the Head Start program and for grants that support teachers and special education.

The list goes on, including programs to support rural areas, to restore wildlife, to prevent child abuse, to prepare for wildfires, and to provide housing assistance for older adults.

Explore more NOW by watching this informational video!

For facts, answers to common questions, and important information please visit the official United States Census website.

Snow Etiquette This Winter!

In the event of snowfall exceeding 2 inches, to help aid the snow removal efforts, please keep all vehicles off Village streets until removal is complete.

Your efforts help make sure our streets can be cleared for all residents and businesses in a timely manner!

Thank you!
