ELMHURST, Ill. (WLS) — Mayors in DuPage County are the latest to push back against Governor JB Pritzker’s Restore Illinois plan, saying they should be allowed to reopen faster than state guidelines.

Tuesday night a cluster of west suburban business owners, some unmasked, occupied the currently empty tables of an Elmhurst restaurant to devise an orchestrated reopening proposal.

“Maybe June 1 or a couple days into June, but definitely June 26 is pushing it,” said Dominic Ranieri, co-owner of 100 South Chop House. “They’re hurting people.”

Right now, Governor JB Prtizker said restaurants aren’t likely to see dine-in customers in any capacity sooner than June 26, and most businesses are shuttered until at least May 30.
