The COVID 19 pandemic continues to impact businesses around the world and locally in Elmhurst, including the Park District. Last May, nearly 90% of the District’s full and part-time employees were notified that they would be furloughed due to the lack of work brought on by mandated facility shutdowns. The hope was to reinstate as many of these positions as possible when operations resumed and/or it became financially feasible.
As the Park District continues to provide facilities, programs, and services under the State of Illinois and other public health guidelines, we would appreciate your feedback.
