A Message from our President - Daniel TannhauserPresident_daniel_tannhauser

On behalf of the Village of Norridge and staff, our thoughts go out to all of those affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19).  Not only has this directly impacted those diagnosed with the virus, everyday we are seeing the indirect impacts to our community through business and school closures, quarantines and restricted travel.  We will continue to make the necessary decisions putting the health and safety of our community first.

The situation is evolving daily, and we are closely monitoring the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations and guidelines so that we can reinforce the appropriate recommendations within the Village.  We believe in doing our part to slow the spread of the virus, and “flatten the curve”, as experts are emphasizing.  This has resulted in several safety measures here in the Village.  These are intended to ensure the health and safety of our Village, while also maintaining the same levels of quality and service all of you are familiar with.

We may not know what the future holds, but we believe we are stronger together.  We will continue to monitor the situation and will continue to forward on any information that will impact you.

Stay safe and healthy.  We will get through this together.

President Daniel Tannhauser
