From the Mayor’s Office


I would like to thank employees of the City of Oak Forest who are working very hard to keep our community safe and secure during this time of concern and crisis.  I sincerely want to thank all of the police officers and firefighters who must take extraordinary precautions because they interact with people on a daily basis without knowing whether someone has the virus or not.


I want to thank the public workers, each of whom is willingly doing their best to protect our health, our water system and the infrastructure of our town.  Like the police and fire departments, those in Public Works are first responders, too.


I want to thank our telecommunicators who receive emergency and non- emergency calls from Oak Forest residents who require help or simply have concerns about their family or their home.  Each of them do an outstanding job.


I want to thank all of our City Hall staff who are working from home answering calls about all of the city business that must go on, as well as the department managers who are spending extra time on the job to help assure the health, safety and welfare of the residents of Oak Forest.


I thank each employee for his or her service.  I pray for their health and safety, for their families, and for each resident of Oak Forest.  We will get through this.
