What three priorities would you like to see the Village Board adopt or address in 2017?
Two-way communication has been an important facet of Village of Orland Park government since the village was first incorporated in 1892. Furthering its mission of civic engagement, the Orland Park Village Board invites residents to offer their input on local issues.
- Building a permanent outdoor entertainment venue
- Bringing in more independent restaurants
- Changing the building permit process
Local legislation in the village is provided by the Board of Trustees, all of whom are elected at large to four year tearms. Orland Park's elected village officials include Mayor Keith Pekau, Village Clerk John Mehalek and Trustees Kathy Fenton, Jim Dodge, Pat Gira, Carole Griffin Ruzich, Dan Calandriello and Mike Carroll.
Village board meetings and individual committee meetings are held on the first and third Mondays of each month.
The committee meetings begin at 6 p.m. and board meetings are at 7 p.m.
Both are open to the public and held in the board room at Village Hall, 14700 S. Ravinia Avenue.
