March 15, 2020
The Village of Hinsdale will close Village Hall to the public beginning the week of March 16, 2020. Critical operations, including services provided by our Police, Fire, Public Works, and the Hinsdale Water Department will not be impacted.
During this closure, Village of Hinsdale employees that support the administrative functions will continue to provide services.
The Village made this decision based on recommendations from Governor J.B. Pritzker on March 12; advising organizations throughout the State of Illinois to consider social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
