Coal Valley will close Village Hall to the public, beginning Friday, until further notice.

The decision was made to stay in compliance with Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker's recent rules for COVID-19.

"We want to protect our small staff," said village administrator Annette Ernst. "Until we get into Phase 5, we are closed indefinitely."

'The drop box will be emptied daily and credit card payments will be accepted over the phone.

The Robert R. Jones Public Library, which is attached to the village hall, began operating under curbside-only service mode Monday. No public access inside the library is permitted other than appointment-only computer use.

These measures are being taken to remain consistent with the Moline-Coal Valley School District's COVID-19 precautions since all schools are going to remote-only learning on that date.
