Temporary Outdoor Dining

Outdoor dining has been important to our community’s overall well-being and valued by the residents during COVID-19.  Our staff will assist businesses interested in offering this service.  Guidelines and renewals will be considered in light of the evolving guidance from the CDC and the Illinois Governor’s Office. 

Businesses eligible to apply include restaurants and bars already established in the Village that are in good standing.  Businesses whose primary function is video gaming are not eligible to apply.
