Reflecting the COVID-19 global pandemic and national public health emergency, at the rescheduled meeting of the Glencoe Board of Trustees meeting on Tuesday, March 17, Village President Lawrence R. Levin issued an emergency declaration for the Village of Glencoe. This measure provides the Village with the ability to utilize emergency purchasing and emergency staffing protocols and procedures as needed. It further provides direction for staff to continue to closely work with partner governments in Glencoe, in our region and with the state and federal governments to address this emergency situation. Learn more here.

The Village of Glencoe Village Hall is closed to the public the week of June 1, 2020. Critical operations, including services provided by our Public Safety Department, Public Works Department and the Glencoe Water Plant are not impacted.
