Following the lead of other local municipalities, the Village of Egg Harbor declared an emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Village Board decided to close the Kress Pavilion until May 12. Administrator Ryan Heise says the action Tuesday will shift the village’s priorities and align staff resources to meet the needs of the community and neighbors. He says Egg Harbor is handling the pandemic in phases.
Heise says Egg Harbor will now wait for the directive from the state, elections commission, and Governor Tony Evers. The eight-week closure of the Kress Pavilion falls in line with the Center for Disease Control’s directive in limiting social interaction. The Village of Egg Harbor will conduct future meetings by either video or teleconferencing. Committee meetings will be minimal, and the Plan Commission will only meet if it is critical.
