A Friend of McHenry County Blog sent the following minutes from the March 23, 2021, meeting of Village of McCullom Lake.

It seems to reflect the type of cleaning Village President Shepit said would be so costly.
Then I found this April 5, 2021, paper from the CDC that puts the chance of infection from touching a surface at 1 in 10,000.
That was published after the meeting for which partial minutes are published below:
