Board Meetings and Commissioners
The Bensenville Park District is governed by five elected officials who set the policies for the operation of the District. Park Commissioners are elected by residents of the District to a six-year term without pay.
It is only the Park Board, acting at a legally constituted meeting, which has the authority to establish or change policy, sign agreements or award contracts. The Park Board appoints an Executive Director to manage the day to day operations of the District.
