As Lake County Government continues to follow social distancing requirements and Governor Pritzker’s Stay-At-Home order, all Lake County board and committee meetings held during the months of April and May will be conducted remotely. Many regularly scheduled meetings have been canceled, and meetings that are held will be limited to agenda items necessary to ensure that essential functions and services can be carried out. Meetings will be live-streamed at, and on cable television (Comcast channels 18 or 30, depending where you live, and AT&T UVerse Channel 99).  Click here for meeting calendars and links to agendas.

Public comments for remote meetings will be accepted by email and phone call only. Public comments received by the start time of each meeting will be read at the beginning of the meeting under Public Comment.

Lake County Government remains united in ensuring the safety and health of our community and our employees. To protect the public and our staff and maintain required government operations, Lake County Government will continue to provide only essential functions and services during the Governor’s Stay-At-Home order. Lake County is urging residents to comply with the Governor’s order and stay home unless leaving is absolutely necessary. If residents must leave the house, it is very important to practice social distancing and keep at least six feet between others.
