Description of Tinley Park Government
The Village operates under the council-manager form of government with a Mayor, Village Clerk, six-member Board of Trustees, Village Manager and professional staff. The Mayor and Trustees serve as the policy-making body of the Village and are elected at-large, not by a specific area or ward.. They perform such functions as passing resolutions and ordinances, approving the expenditure of money, levying taxes, approving subdivisions, zoning, and other land use regulations, and generally deciding on important issues which affect the Village of Tinley Park.
The Mayor, with the consent and approval of the Village Board, appoints department heads to direct the activities of the respective operating departments. Department heads report to the Village Manager, who in turn reports to the Village Board and is responsible for the implementation of Village Board policy.
In addition, numerous Village commissions and committees, staffed by volunteers representing private citizens and businesses alike, focus on various aspects of economic development, long range planning, residential issues and community projects/activities.
Responsive elected officials and a dedicated Village staff take pride in delivering superior services to residents of Tinley Park. Through foresight and progressive thinking, Tinley Park officials have secured the comfort and well-being of the Village's residents.
