Questions & Answers

What programs aren't paying for themselves? Would you keep, eliminate or change them? How and why?

We have spent a great deal of time over the last four years making sure we plan for and maintain only programs have acceptable levels of participation and meet their financial objectives.

Is there any additional open space the park district needs to acquire? Please describe.

Not at this time.

Are there any unmet recreational needs? If yes, what are they and how would you propose paying for them? Or, should they wait until the economy improves?

We continually review and survey residents about any and all potential needs. Changes occur and we will continue to adapt based on that information.

Would you support sharing/pooling resources (i.e. printing, vehicles) with other local governments (school districts, village, etc.)? If so, what areas would you consider combining or merging to save money or improve efficiency?

We already have co-op strategies with other Park Districts
