Fox Valley Park District

Board of Commissioners

101 W. Illinois Ave., Aurora, Illinois ● 630-897-0516 ● Directions

The Fox Valley Park District is governed by a seven-member Board of Commissioners, which approves all policy and financial decisions, and also appoints the Executive Director, along with the Park District attorney and auditors.

In 2017 – for the first time in the Park District’s 70-year history – residents took to the voting booth to elect seven commissioners from three two-member districts, and one commissioner at large. View map of representative districts. Previously, all board members were appointed by the Kane County Board chairman.

By lottery, four commissioners were selected to serve four-year terms, with three commissioners to serve a two-year term with four-year terms thereafter, if re-elected. Elections for Fox Valley Park District commissioners will be held on the first Tuesday in April of odd-numbered years, beginning in 2019, as part of the consolidated general election.

The Fox Valley Park District Board of Commissioners meets the second Monday of each month at 6 p.m. at the Prisco Community Center, 150 W. Illinois Ave., Aurora, unless otherwise noted, and in accordance with the Open Meetings Act. The public is invited and encouraged to attend. Agendas and board packets are posted here and available publicly on the Thursday before each month’s meeting.

Public Comment Procedure

Public Comment

The Fox Valley Park District encourages public involvement and provides an opportunity for comment at regular business meetings.  However, board meetings are conducted for the purpose of carrying on the business of the District and, therefore, are not public meetings but meetings held in public.

Additionally, the Board of Commissioners is not required to respond to your remarks during the course of the meeting.

Procedure

Speakers are requested to sign-in at the entrance of the meeting room and complete a public comment sign-up sheet.  The Board President will open public comment at the appropriate time as indicated on the meeting agenda.

The Fox Valley Park District Board of Commissioners will allow 3 minutes for each speaker, with a maximum of 15 minutes of public comment at each meeting.  When the Board President calls your name, please approach the podium and state your full name before addressing the Board of Commissioners with the item of interest to you.  Your comments should not be directed at a single Commissioner, staff member, or any other individual.  You will be notified when 30 seconds are remaining and again when the 3-minute period has expired.
