Businesses across the state are celebrating as the State of Illinois begins to open back up.
Shelly Crawford-Stock is the Monticello Chamber of Commerce and Monticello Main Street Executive Director and indicates they are working with their downtown restaurants to come up with some outside the box ideas on outdoor seating.
The plans for options for downtown restaurants have been in the works for some time in Monticello. According to Crawford-Stock, they want to balance safety for the community but making sure their businesses have something to offer. She says they brought together several parties to make sure they did it right.
Outdoor availability for dining is limited to several Monticello restaurants. According to Crawford-Stock, they are making adjustments to their outdoor areas for patrons.
Crawford-Stock says to keep tabs on their Make It Monticello Facebook and Instagram accounts along with makeitmonticello.com. The Chamber and Main Street keep the site updated with services available in the community, restaurants open for curbside pick-up, and much more.
