After the legislature did not extend the state of emergency beyond April 30, Mayor Adam Stockford stated: This is not legal advice or a legal statement, but many businesses in Hillsdale intend to open back up on May 1 to regular hours. Most will be operating under some sort of new self-imposed restrictions for social distancing and we can trust our responsible community to do this voluntarily. Those that choose to do so it is a personal decision and I support them and will do what I can to protect them. Now is the time to salvage what we can. I thank the state legislature for finally stepping in.
