From McHenry Mayor Wayne Jett:
Kick Start McHenry!
Join us this Friday, May 29th for McHenry’s Phase 3 Grand Re-Opening Event!
Dear Citizens and Businesses of McHenry:
On Friday, May 29th, 2020 the City of McHenry is on track to re-open a significant part of our local economy in accordance with Phase 3 of the Governor’s Restore Illinois Plan.
What this means for McHenry is that many of our businesses that were required to close due to the Stay at Home Order issued by the Governor can now open and start up again!
Local Businesses that will be re-opening with restrictions and guidance include: Hair Salons, Barber Shops, Nail Salons, Tanning Salons, Massage Parlors, Tattoo Parlors, Cosmetology Schools, Retail Stores, Day Camps, Health, Fitness and Dance Centers and Manufacturing Businesses.
Attached to this address are the State Guidelines and informational posters issued by the Governor’s Office for each business classification that is included in Phase 3 of the Restore Illinois Plan.
Businesses and residents are encouraged to read this document carefully so they fully understand the rules related to Phase 3 openings.
A request for assistance form is also included for local businesses who might need additional resources or guidance so that they can open up as soon as possible.
Over the course of the next couple days, City staff will be working diligently to reach out one-on-one, to as many local businesses as possible, to review the guidelines, answer questions and support the re-opening of our local businesses.
Business related questions can be forwarded via email to Economic Development Director Doug Martin at email@example.com.
Many of our local businesses have been labeled non-essential by the Governor’s Executive Order but to us they are as essential to McHenry as any business can ever be.
My message to all McHenry residents is that we need your help to “Kick Start McHenry”.
You can do this by making a commitment to McHenry to embrace our local economy’s grand re-opening and shop local for ALL your needs these next few weeks.
If we all join in together we can help to ensure that our local businesses and our local economy gets the much needed kick start it deserves.
