Discussion Regarding the Survey Results for the Expenditure of American  
Rescue Act Funds  
At the November 15, 2021 Village Board Meeting, staff provided a report of the  
initial feedback from the web survey regarding the ARPA funds. The Village  
Board asked that this discussion continue at the Special Meeting on November  
22,2021 to confirm next steps.  
An Ordinance Amending Chapter 20 (“Public Health”), Article 1 (“Oak Park  
Department of Public Health”), Section 20-1-6 (“Authority and Duties of  
the Director”) of the Oak Park Village Code to Permit the Public Health  
Director to Make Reasonable Rules, Regulations and Orders Due to the  
Outbreak of COVID-19 Disease  
Per the motion of Trustee Walker-Peddakotla and Trustee Enyia, this ordinance  
is on the agenda for the November 22, 2021 meeting for consideration. The  
ordinance amends Section 20-1-6(BB) of the Village Code regarding the Public  
Health Director’s emergency authority to make reasonable rules, regulations  
and orders due to the outbreak of COVID-19 disease. However, Section  
20-1-6(Z), and other provisions contained in Section 20-1-6, grants such  
authority when there is an emergency in place and Illinois Governor JB Pritzker  
continues to declare an emergency in the State of Illinois due to the COVID-19  
pandemic. The last meeting did not have this item on the agenda to renew the  
emergency declaration because of the latter.
