Board of Trustees 

Village Government
The Village of Orland Park was incorporated May 31, 1892. The council-manager form of government, which was adopted on November 5, 1983, is available to all municipalities under 500,000 in population. It also allows the municipality to retain its governmental structure as an aldermanic-city form, trustee-village form, or commission form while adopting the features of the manager form.

Local legislation in the Village of Orland Park is provided by the elected Board of Trustees. The elected officials include the village president (mayor), village clerk, and six village trustees, each of whom is elected at large (village-wide) to a four-year term.

Village Clerk

Welcome to the village clerk's area of the village's website. To give you a quick history, know that the village clerk is the official record keeper, the librarian for the village.

My duties follow state statute and village ordinance. The village clerk attends board and committee meetings, publishes resolutions and ordinances and serves as the custodian of all village documents not held by another village officer. I am also the village's local elections official.

Services provided by the Village Clerk's Office include voter registration, absentee voting information, passport applications, medical identification bracelets, freedom of information requests and general information. The Clerk's Office staff also works closely with the Cook County Elections Department to facilitate voting for all elections.
John M. Kott was Orland Park's first village clerk, serving from 1901 until 1912. The Clerk's Office has Clerk Kott's hand written meeting minutes from 1901 and has preserved them for future generations.

Take a look around the Clerk's Office area and if you don't find what you're looking for, give our office a call at (708) 403-6150.
