A Great Place To Live and Work
Carol Stream offers modern schools, extensive green space, a large park district with state of the art facilities, a modern library, a strong industrial sector, 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, enacting ordinances and setting the policy for the Village.
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. Other official Boards and Commissions include the Plan Commission/Zoning Board of Appeals, the Fire and Police 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. Read about us in the Fox Valley Magazine Article - Carol Stream Profile
