New Lenox Mayor Tim Baldermann joins John Landecker to discuss the new plan for Halloween. Baldermann says in the wake of COVID-19, he wanted to help address the issue early. Normal trick or treat hours will still be on from 3-7 p.m. Residents that are concerned about having trick-or-treaters at their home, could attend a small event in the common center. Parents can bring their kids in costumes and receive a bag of candy from the village. Also, Baldemann says a universal yard sign, “trick-or-treaters welcome here” was designed to avoid any potential confrontation of knocking on doors.
