The Village of Oak Brook believes it is important to encourage residents input and participation at many different levels of government. As a result, the Village has numerous boards and commissions to give residents an insight and a voice on important community issues. As vacancies occur, the Village is always looking for civic minded residents to participate in the decision making process of our community. The volunteer Board and Commission members provide a valuable service to the community and the Village Board of Trustees by conducting public hearings and researching the issues before making a final recommendation or decision. The recommendation, decisions and hard work of these boards and commissions can be seen every day throughout our community.
