AGENDAS, MINUTES, & FINANCIAL DOCUMENTS
The Park District Board meets monthly at 7 p.m. at the Hoosier Grove Barn. All meetings are open to the public.
Notices of all public meetings are posted online and within all Park District facilities. If you have a park concern, suggestions, or would like to observe how the Park District operates, please join us.
The Streamwood Park District is a separate governing unit which levies its own tax to provide park facilities and recreation for district residents. Innovative leadership starts with our community-elected, five-member Board of Commissioners. Members of the Board of Commissioners are elected to a four-year term and serve without compensation.
Board meetings are normally scheduled for the fourth (4th) Tuesday of each month. Due to legal and other obligations, we have an abnormally higher percentage of Board meetings not falling on the fourth (4th) Tuesday of each month in 2020. Deviations from the fourth (4th) Tuesday are noted with an asterisk.
Public Act 101-0504
In 2019, Governor Pritzker signed Public Act 101-0504 into law, which amends part of the Illinois Pension Code. Effective July 1, 2020, the new law certain website posting requirements for the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund (IMRF) and for municipalities.
Of most interest to municipalities is the new requirement that municipalities with a website post a link to the IMRF “Employer Cost & Participant Information” webpage on their websites. Although the law became effective July 1, 2020, this website posting requirement does not take effect until January 1, 2021. The law also makes it clear that it does not require a municipality to establish or maintain a website.
The law also requires the IMRF to post information on its website that includes: (1) copies of resolutions adopted by municipalities on or after January 1, 1995 to participate in the IMRF; (2) an annual report detailing the date that municipalities participating in the IMRF first became a municipality; and (3) all documents pertaining to each participating municipality’s annual projected future contributions and past required contributions. The lIMRF is not required to post information on its website that would be exempt under the Illinois Freedom of Information Act.
