Kankakee, IL – City of Kankakee meetings will resume in person with a room capacity limit of no more than 50 people under Phase 4 guidelines in the Restore Illinois plan. Mayor Wells-Armstrong made the announcement at Monday night’s city council meeting.

“Our numbers have significantly declined. I want to thank everyone who is working hard to stop the spread of COVID-19 by wearing their masks, washing their hands and keeping their distance. To keep the chambers open, we must be mindful that everyone does not have access to the vaccine; therefore, we must lead by example and properly wearing face coverings to reduce exposure to others. We will continue to manage through this pandemic and implement appropriate mitigation measures,” said Mayor Wells-Armstrong.

The next city council meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 16, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. due to the city observing Presidents’ Day on Monday. Face masks must be worn over the nose and mouth while in the council chambers for safety measures.
