Mayor Cedric Glover continues to run the city, despite being in the hospital.
The mayor tore tendons in both of his quadriceps after falling at Oak Park Microsociety Elementary School.
City Comunications Director Rod Richardson said the mayor will undergo surgery later in the week.
"He's in good spirits right now," said Richardson. "The Mayor is working from the office which is the hospital now so we're taking documents for him to sign and keeping him up to date on what's going on. He really appreciates all their cards and the good wishes that people have sent to him but he's still in charge and he's looking forward to getting back to his full robust schedule."
Richardson said the mayor will teleconference into the city council's meeting Tuesday. He estimates it will be four to six weeks before the Mayor fully recovers. If you'd like to contact him, Richardson said you can tweet him or send a card to his mayoral office.
