YORKVILLE – The Kendall County Office Building will soon re-open to the public starting next week.

Kendall County officials announced in a Thursday, May 28 news release that Chairman Scott Gryder will be re-opening the building, 111 W. Fox St., starting Monday, June 1.

County officials wrote in the release a 24-hour drop box has been installed to protect the health and safety of county employees and the public. It is located on the north side of the building facing the parking lot.

All visitors must enter the building from the north end, using the doors from the west side, and exit through the doors on the east side. The south entrance to the building will remain closed, according to county officials.

County officials wrote masks are required for all building visitors. County officials are asking the public to follow all social distancing requirements posted in the building.

Visitors also should expect long wait times at normal peak hours, county officials wrote in the release.
