The terms for appointment last until the next general election in 2023 at which time the new members would need to run for the remaining time left on their appointed seats.
The Park District oversees the maintenance and scheduling of the Community Center and Baker Field as well as running several recreational activities like the summer kids camp and the kayak program. The district also provides additional assistance for groups utilizing our facilities whenever possible.
