One southern Illinois community is looking at possibly re-opening businesses in the town despite the continued stay-at-home statewide order. The Harrisburg City Council will meet Tuesday to discuss the steps to take if the city is to re-open.


Harrisburg Mayor John McPeek says while he is not looking to make any decision that could hurt the health or safety of residents, he also knows that there are businesses that may not last much longer without re-opening.



McPeek says businesses like jewelry and clothing stores, and hair and nail salons in his community likely won’t make it another 30 days without being able to bring in revenue.
