Mayor McNamara, Rep. West ask Gov. Pritzker to move Region 1 to Tier 1 status

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) – City of Rockford Mayor Tom McNamara and State Representative Maurice West issued a letter to Gov. Pritzker asking for Region 1 to move from Tier 2 to Tier 1 status.

The request has been made in order to allow restaurants to maintain indoor dining capacity at 25 percent. The letter claims small businesses — including restaurants — are bearing the brunt of the recent move to Tier 2 mitigation status of the Restore Illinois Plan.

The letter goes on to say that Tier 2 mitigation, as originally designated, puts a narrow target on restaurants for mitigation.

“This recent move straight to Tier 2 status will mean the end of many of our small restaurants,” the letter said.

Like I said in an earlier post, there are many in our community working together to find a compromise. Thank you Thomas…
