Morton Grove Park District is accepting letters of interest to fill a vacant seat on its Board of Park Commissioners. The candidate selected will finish the remaining term of Commissioner Dan Staackmann who resigned. The appointed Commissioner will then serve until the April 2019 consolidated election.

The Morton Grove Park District Board of Commissioners is a five-member Board which performs a valuable and necessary service in providing for a sound Park District.  The members of the Board serve without monetary compensation and this commitment involves approximately 10 hours of volunteer time per month.  The Park Board’s regularly scheduled meetings are held on the first and third Wednesday of the month at the Prairie View Community Center at 6:30 pm.

The Board functions under the authority of the Illinois Park District code, Illinois State Compiled Statutes, and within the framework of laws, court decisions, opinions of the Illinois Attorney General, and similar mandates from the state and national levels of government.  The function of the Board is primarily to establish policies of the Park District and approve the annual budget rather than administrative details.
