A new Village Park Committee was appointed by President George Stoner and approved by the Village Board on February 9, 2016.  In compliance with Village Ordinance 1.18, the new Committee consists of seven residents, none of whom occupy any elected Village public office, and one alternate member who will act when a regular member is absent or withdraws.  Village Trustee Joe Cardinali acts as the Village Board liaison and Kevin Griffin (not pictured) serves as the recreational/leisure activity liaison.


The Park Committee makes recommendations to the Village Plan Commission and Village Board concerning issues relating to the acquisition, improvement, and uses of park lands owned or sought to be acquired by the Village.
