We have closed all of our buildings to the public. Village Board and all Commission meetings have been canceled until further notice. However the business of the Village continues. The Village Board met on March 24, and established protocols to continue its operation during this emergency.
Municipal services are exempt from the Shelter-in-Place order. Please be assured that all essential services are being maintained as normal! We encourage residents to call (630) 736-3844 if assistance is needed. Licenses, permits and other services can be obtained through our website or by phone and mail. Some required in-person services will be by appointment only. For all police-related concerns and emergencies, please continue to call 911.
The Village is doing its part to ensure the services our community needs and expects remain, while keeping our employees safe:
- We have suspended new late fees and water shut-offs
- We are conducting business electronically or by phone and mail, as much as possible
- Business inspections are limited; mandatory inspections are by appointment only
- We have established cleaning and disinfecting protocols
- We are not allowing visitors at any of our facilities
- We are using a variety of social distancing techniques
- We have extended permit expiration dates
Advanced Disposal will collect refuse and recycling, including yard waste starting on April 1, as regularly scheduled. However, they are suspending bulk item collections for the safety of their drivers. This will eliminate the need for 2 drivers to be in close proximity as they are promoting social distancing for their drivers.
By order of the Governor’s Office, Streamwood Oaks Golf Club may remain open. They are only taking tee times online or by phone. No carts may be used, our clubhouse is closed, and flags and cups are elevated so they are not touched. Golfers are required to follow social distancing on the course.
Hospitals are in need of a steady blood supply. We are planning on holding our April Blood Drive. Our Blood Commission is working with Vitalant to schedule this important event at the Vitalant Schaumburg Donation Center.
Our local Food Pantry is also in need of more supplies! We have established an exterior collection bin for ease of donating non-perishable food at the Village Hall by our east doors (closest to the Veterans Memorial). We have also created a convenient donation opportunity on our website. Simply go to www.streamwood.org and select “Donate to the Food Pantry” where you will be directed to our secure online payment center.
Simple things you can do to remain vigilant include identifying symptoms that should be monitored. Consider taking your temperature as part of your morning routine. If it’s over 99.9º F, stay home as a preventive measure. Do you have a fever? Do you have a prolonged cough or sore throat? Is your nose running uncontrollably? If you have a combination of these symptoms, seek medical evaluation.
The best course of action remains simple prevention: wash your hands, don’t touch your face, stay home if you’re sick, and keep six feet apart.
We will try to keep you informed about these ever changing events as we can. We will weather this health crisis together with your patience and cooperation.
