In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Village of Wheeling is taking proactive steps to help prevent or deter the spread of the virus in the community. While there are no current cases of COVID-19 within Wheeling, taking action now to limit exposure helps protect the health and safety of us all. Because the most effective way to prevent the spread of coronavirus is to limit contact with and closeness to other people, the Village is suspending the following functions:

  • Public building tours
  • Police ride-alongs
  • Car seat checks
  • Fingerprinting services
  • Blood pressure checks
  • Sharps and medications collections
  • Administrative adjudications
  • Peer Jury

The Village has also cancelled meetings of the following public bodies:

  • Upcoming meetings cancelled:
  • Senior Commission
  • Board of Health

Please note that several Village transactions can be conducted online, without the need to come to the Village Hall, Police Station, or other public buildings.

  • Payments for water bills, parking compliance tickets, red light camera tickets, and Metra parking fees can be paid at this link.
  • Freedom of Information Act requests, Public Works service requests, Code Violation reports, and Police reports can be submitted at this link.

  • Applications for employment for current job openings can be submitted at this link.
  • Water bill payments can be paid by check and mailed or dropped off in the water bill drop box at the Wheeling Village Hall (2 Community Boulevard) 24 hours a day.

The Village of Wheeling is currently following all Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines and State of Illinois orders with respect to COVID-19, and is continuing normal operations, with no current plans to close public buildings. This is a rapidly evolving situation and closures could occur.
