Applications being accepted for Fox Valley Park Board

Published: Friday, Nov. 22, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

Applications from Kane County residents interested in being appointed to the Fox Valley Park District will be accepted at the Kane County Board Office through Friday, according to a news release.

A formal vetting process by a special advisory panel is scheduled to begin Monday, and selections presented to the full Kane County Board on Dec. 10.

Kane County Board Chairman Chris Lauzen has the responsibility to make appointments to the district and fill vacancies with the advice and consent of the Kane County Board. The Fox Valley Park District is governed by a seven-member Board of Trustees.

County Board chairmen appoint board members in counties that have a proportionate share of the population in the district. Currently, the Kane County Board chairman appoints six members, and the DuPage County Board chairman appoints one member.

Each board member is equally responsible for seeing that the parks are properly managed in terms of planning, policy and decisions that the board has agreed on in a regular or special meeting.

Applications may be submitted in person to the Kane County Board office, Kane County Government Center, 719 Batavia Ave., Building A, Third Floor, Geneva.
