April 3 

The regularly scheduled Board of Supervisors’ meeting set for Tuesday, April 7 at 8 p.m. will occur as planned but will be a virtual meeting.

In keeping with social distancing guidelines, interested residents can log-on to join a Zoom meeting by clicking here before the Board of Supervisors’ meeting begins on Tuesday evening. Alternatively, residents can dial-in to listen to the meeting at 312-626-6799 (Password: 691636).
 
Although residents and interested parties are free to make public comment at Tuesday’s virtual Board meeting, it is suggested that comments and questions be submitted before the meeting occurs by clicking here supervisors@whitpaintownship.org.

Township staff is carefully testing the Zoom platform to ensure that the virtual meeting runs as smoothly as possible, but we ask for your patience should any technical issues occur.

The coronavirus is causing unprecedented interruptions to daily life. Businesses are especially hard hit by required closures and new guidelines, such as social distancing.
 
These steps are necessary to help fight the outbreak but the Township understands the economic impact and has collected these resources for businesses and employees.

The deadline for a business to apply to stay open during the coronavirus outbreak is today at 5 p.m. Click here for the application. 
 
During this time, consider helping a small business by ordering takeout or purchasing goods online. Every little bit helps.

As we enter the weekend, here is the latest from the Township.

Please continue to use email and telephone to conduct Township business next week. The Township asks that you limit activity to essential business.  

All Township meetings for next week are cancelled.

Parks and Recreation programming is cancelled for the next several weeks as the department awaits more information and guidance from health officials.

Playground equipment, tot-lots and basketball courts at Township parks remain closed until further notice. Park users should use their best judgment and err on the side of caution when using park facilities and public spaces. Practice social distancing if you visit a park. Leashes should be used with dogs at all times.

Please No Wipes In Pipes  


The Township urges residents to only flush toilet paper down toilets. Flushing other items, such as such as sanitary or disposable disinfectant wipes, tissues, paper towels, dental floss or other hygiene products, can cause backups and clogging in the sewer system. Remember "No Wipes In Pipes" please.
