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.
