Commissioners take first step toward Homewood Estates Park redesign

Flossmoor Mayor Paul Braun was granted emergency powers at the April 6 village board meeting. 

The emergency powers allow Braun to make decisions without approval from the village board in the event of extreme circumstances due to COVID-19. The powers expire at the next board meeting, on April 20, when trustees will be asked to renew them. 


Under the ordinance, approved unanimously at the remotely-conducted meeting, Braun has the authority to take all reasonable actions to respond to the emergency.
