The City will be cancelling meetings of City boards and commissions until at least May 18. The exception will be those boards/commissions that have pending business that cannot be postponed. In such cases, the number of people in attendance will be limited per state mandates, and social distancing procedures will be followed. The Wheaton City Council will continue to meet to conduct City business.
The City is working to reschedule these events to a later date. The events that will not take place on their originally scheduled dates include:
- Recycling Extravaganza (originally April 4)
- Start of the French Market season (originally April 11 start)
- Arbor Day celebration (originally April 24)
- Native Plant Sale (originally April 25)
The City anticipates additional events will be postponed and/or cancelled.
The Wheaton Public Library made the difficult decision to close starting Monday, March 16, in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Please watch the Library’s website at www.wheatonlibrary.org for updates, announcements and additional information. Thank you for your understanding.
If residents have City business to conduct, there are a number of services available online for residents. Online payments for utility billing are available at www.wheaton.il.us/billpay. Payments can also be dropped off in the drive-through mailbox just west of City Hall (the driveway entrance is on Wesley Street). In addition, many types of service requests can be made online at wheaton.il.us/servicerequest.

Information on Illinois Restaurants & Carry-out
An Executive Order by the Illinois Governor currently requires the closure of on-premise dining at restaurants through March 30. However, carry-out, drive-up, and drive-through options are allowed. The Downtown Wheaton Association is compiling information from downtown businesses on their specific options for carry-out, delivery, etc. See the Downtown Wheaton Association’s Facebook group for more information on how you can continue to support local businesses.
