FRANKFORT, IL – The Village of Frankfort has implemented safety measures in response to the broader situation of migrant arrivals in the Chicagoland area, despite no migrants having arrived in Frankfort to date. Announced on Saturday by Village President Keith Ogle, these measures are aimed at ensuring the community’s preparedness for any potential logistical challenges that could arise.
The village’s action plan involves enforcing local and state laws, with a focus on the Illinois Vehicle Code, to maintain public safety and regulate street usage. This is a proactive strategy to address any unforeseen situations related to migrant arrivals, particularly under adverse conditions.
While Frankfort has not received any migrants as of now, this initiative highlights the village’s commitment to preparedness and efficient resource management. The collaboration with the Will County Emergency Management Agency is part of this comprehensive approach to safeguarding the community against any possible impacts from the regional migrant situation.
