Changes to upcoming Board Meetings due to COVID concern post-holidays

Village Hall

The Village Board Meeting scheduled for Jan. 17., is canceled. However, the meeting on Jan.23 will be held remotely via Zoom at 7 p.m. due to concerns about a post-holiday surge in COVID cases. 

Village Manager Tom Mick said despite the meetings going remote, residents will still be able to watch the sessions live." The Village prides itself on transparency," Mick said. "Though we're going remote temporarily, residents can access the meetings on various platforms from our live stream on the Village's website or watching on cable access." Residents who'd like to provide public comment for those two meetings can do so via email. Mick said they could email him at by 3 p.m. on the day of the meeting, and he will read those public comments during the session. 

Board meeting agendas are available for residents at Village Hall and are posted online the Friday afternoon preceding a Board meeting and can be accessed by clicking here

Additionally, those meetings are aired live online and on the government access cable channel, channel 4 for Comcast/Xfinity subscribers and channel 99 for AT&T subscribers. Meetings are rebroadcast on cable several times a week – Sundays at 1 p.m., Wednesdays at 6 p.m., Fridays at 11 a.m., and Saturdays at 9 a.m. – and are also added to the Village's online Board Meeting Archive, which can be found here.

The Village Board of Park Forest meets every first, third and fourth Monday night of the month at 7 p.m. The Board also meets on the first Saturday of every month at 10 a.m. Usually, all Board meetings occur at Village Hall, 350 Victory Drive. The full meeting schedule for 2023 can be found here
