Vilonia City Hall Closed for Solar Eclipse, Monday, April 8, 2024

Vilonia City Hall will be closed Monday, April 8, 2024, to allow our employees to celebrate the total solar eclipse.

The eclipse totality is expected to start around 1:45 PM and end by 2:00 PM, however the sky will start dimming around 12:30 PM and return to normal around 3:15 PM.

Please stay safe by following the rules below:

  1. Always inspect your solar filters before use. If scratched, punctured, torn, or otherwise damaged, please do not use them.

  2. If you normally wear eyeglasses, keep them on. Put your eclipse glasses over them or hold your handheld viewer in front of them.

  3. During the eclipse, cover your eyes with your eclipse glasses BEFORE looking at the sun. After looking, turn away before removing your glasses.

  4. Do not look at the Sun through an unfiltered camera, telescope, binoculars, or other optical devices while using eclipse solar filters because the concentrated rays could damage both the filter and your eyes.

  5. The only time it is safe to remove your eclipse glasses is during the total phase of a total solar eclipse. This may only last for a brief time, so be careful!

  6. Supervise young children to ensure eclipse glasses are secure. To ensure a snug fit, try attaching ribbons or elastic bands to the glasses. PLEASE REMEMBER TO OBSERVE THE ECLIPSE SAFELY! IMPROPER SAFETY MEASURES CAN EASILY RESULT IN PERMANENT DAMAGE TO YOUR VISION, EVEN BLINDNESS.
