On March 17, 2020, Mayor Steve Chirico declared a local state of emergency in the City of Naperville as the community responds to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Naperville City Council has subsequently passed ordinances extending the declaration through the length of the statewide declaration of emergency.
Once a local state of emergency has been declared, the Mayor is authorized, through executive order, to relax City ordinances to deal with emerging issues resulting from the crisis and to help provide financial relief to residents and businesses affected by the crisis. All executive orders issued by Mayor Chirico under the current declaration of local emergency will be posted here:
