This Hall is Available

The Stanley CupThe Village of Mundelein has seized the bleeding edge of municipal governance. In an era when brick-and-mortar businesses are vanishing faster than the dinosaurs, Mundelein has shuttered its brick-and-mortar city hall. The city hall doors are locked and all Mundelein city business, henceforth, is being conducted in the cloud -- via a proprietary amalgam of Skype, Google Docs, a peer-to-peer botnet and dedicated IRC chatroom. Anyone with an iPhone 6 now has no excuse for being AWOL to the next Mundelein Village Board meeting!

Haha, j/k.

The Village of Mundelein now conducts business in a new city hall, located somewhere in the the Village of Mundelein.  And while not like decommissioning a battleship or deconsecrating a church, strict regulations and requirements do have to be met before Mundelein's old city hall building can go off-line. According to the News-Sun ...
A survey will soon go public asking Mundelein residents for help in deciding what happen to the 85-year-old building that was formerly Village Hall.
