Welcome to the Village of Oak Brook!
Dear Friends and Neighbors:
Warmer weather and longer days are finally here. More and more residents come out to enjoy their yards, walking/bike paths and connecting with their neighbors. The Village has yet another fun summer of events planned with the Annual Taste of Oak Brook on Sunday, July 3, from 4 to 9 pm at the Oak Brook Polo Fields. Some of the Oak Brook area finest restaurants will serve delicious samplings from their menus, children’s activities and live entertainment with the day concluding with a spectacular fireworks display that all will enjoy. Come and join us for some food, fun and fireworks!
At a special Village Board meeting in April, the Village Board approved an agreement with Pineoak Partners to run polo for the 2016 season. The Village will monetarily support the 2016 polo program and matches will be held on the Oak Brook polo fields. By outsourcing polo, we still retain the rich tradition of Oak Brook polo, but reduce the amount of fiduciary strain that was placed on the Village in the past. Information on ticket prices, dates and times of Polo matches can be found online at www.oakbrookpoloclub.com.
I am sure many residents have seen that the electric rates offered by Commonwealth Edison have come down over the last few months. Their published rates for the proposed prices-to-compare for this June through November will be 6.195 cents/kWh and from November through May 2017 will be 6.315cents/kWh. These rates are posted prior to any monthly Purchased Energy Adjustment (PEA) that ComEd May offer. As these new rates fall below our contracted rate of 6.754 cents/kWh with Eligo Energy LLC, we will be working with Eligo to make sure they establish a rate equal to the ComEd pricing for that time period per the two year agreement that the Village negotiated. Additionally, in the future, I will ask the Electric Aggregation Committee to convene to review the Village’s involvement in an aggregation program moving forward.
The Oak Brook Public Library will also have an array of programs offered this summer for both children and adults. Further information on the Library programs are included in this newsletter.
As always, the Trustees, the staff, and I are available to you at all times. Feel free to call, email or meet any of us if you have any thoughts and concerns. We are here to serve you. As Dr. Jonas Salk so aptly said, “I feel the greatest reward for doing is the opportunity to do more.”
