A GREAT PLACE TO LIVE AND WORK
Carol Stream also offers modern schools, a large park district with state of the art facilities, a modern library and churches of several denominations. The Village of Carol Stream is governed by a seven member legislative body made up of a Mayor and Board of Trustees. The Mayor and Trustees are elected to four-year staggered terms. The Mayor and Board of Trustees form the governing body of the Village, enacting ordinances and setting the policy for Village services and procedures. The Mayor and Village Board of Trustees encourage residents to attend its regular meetings held on the 1st & 3rd Monday of each month at 7:30 pm at the Bielawski Municipal Center located at 500 N. Gary Ave. Should a 1st or 3rd Monday fall on a national holiday, the meeting will be rescheduled to the next day. During each meeting, residents and the general public are provided an opportunity to share issues and concerns directly with the Board during the Listening Post segment. Citizenship requires residents get to know their elected representatives and attending a Village Board meeting is a good way to get to know your new community and become familiar with the many services we provide. Other official Boards and Commissions include the Plan Commission/Zoning Board of Appeals, the Fire and Police Commission, the Human Services Commission and the Police Pension Fund Board. The Village Manager is the Chief Administrative Officer of the Village and is responsible for the day-to-day management of all Village operations under the direction of the Mayor and Board of Trustees.
The Village of Carol Stream, the Carol Stream Chamber of Commerce and the Carol Stream Convention and Visitors Bureau continue to work together to carry out Jay Stream's vision of making Carol Stream an enjoyable place to work and raise a family.
