Oak Brook voters want park board terms reduced
In two nonbinding referendum questions, voters have recommended the Oak Brook Park District reduce the length of park board commissioners' terms but maintain the current number of commissioners on the board.
With all precincts reporting unofficial results, a question asking whether the term of park board commissioner should be reduced to 4 years from 6 years was met with a yes vote from 84 percent of voters, as 16 percent voted no. Meanwhile, 56 percent of voters opposed increasing the board to seven members from five, with 44 percent voting in favor of the change. The vote totals are unofficial.
Resident William Lindeman said he and 11 other residents collected signatures to get the two questions on the ballot in an effort to encourage greater transparency on the park board.
