Public Comment

“Matters from the Public” is a permanent agenda item, providing the opportunity for public comment on Park District operations. The board receives public comment regarding non-agenda topics in person, via email, or via voice message left before the scheduled start time of the meeting. Emailed or phoned in comments must be directed to Monika Solomacha, Board Secretary, at msolomacha@napervilleparks.org or at 630-848-3502. Comments will be read aloud or played for up to 3 minutes per speaker. Comments regarding an agenda topic will be allowed upon consideration of that item prior to board discussion using the same procedure.

Board Committee Meetings

The Park Board recognizes that certain business of the District may be facilitated by the formation of various standing and ad hoc committees that may be convened to undertake projects, elicit citizen input or staff advice, or assist the board in the furtherance of any proper activity of the Park District. Each committee must comply with the provisions of the Illinois Open Meetings Act and observe Roberts Rules of Order.

The Naperville Park District follows a process where new business is brought to the committee for introduction, discussion, and consideration. No action is taken in board committee meetings. If the committee finds that a particular topic merits consideration of the full board, the item is added to the agenda as new business and is discussed typically at the second board meeting of the month.

There are currently three board committees that meet regularly to cover the topics of finance, legislative and parks and recreation, and all committee meetings are open to the public. Additional information regarding each committee can be found using the following individual links:

Finance Committee

The Finance Committee is comprised of a subset of park board members and staff and meets quarterly or as needed to discuss topics that are financially-related including budgets, bonding authority issues, and investment review. The committee provides ongoing Board oversight of the Park District’s financial management and provides reports at the first park board meeting of the month.
