Mayor Asks Governor to Problem Solve, Not Shutdown Small Business

“Genoa Mayor Mark Vicary wrote in a Friday letter to Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker that no one in the city of about 5,200 residents wants to get sick but they don’t want to see their small businesses fail. He wrote he wanted the governor to look at implementing more innovative solutions, like electrostatic spraying, as opposed to relying solely on data for opening and closure decision making.”
