Village of Richmond is taking Measures to Limit Spread
of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

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 Monday, March 16th and extending through March 30h, the Village Hall (located at 5600 Hunter Drive) asks or your cooperation in limiting all over-the-counter services, including utility bill payments, building/zoning permits, and all licensing and registration services.

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.
