The Village of Orland Park operates under the council-manager form of government, which combines the strong political leadership of elected officials in the form of a governing body with the strong managerial experience of an appointed local government manager. The manager is hired to serve the board and the community and to bring to the local government the benefits of training and experience in administering local government projects and programs on behalf of the governing body. 

Areas of Focus

Following the policy direction of the Orland Park Board of Trustees, the Village Manager is focusing on the following village issues:

Guiding Principles

To accomplish these policy directives, staff will follow four guiding principles:

  • Customer Service: Providing the optimum in municipal services for those who choose Orland Park as the ideal place in which to live and raise a family
  • Finance / Budgeting: Maintaining and building on Orland Park's strong reputation for conservative budgeting and prudent use of taxpayer dollars
  • Professional Management: Bringing professional, market-based approaches to the delivery of public services, where possible, and working in partnership with the private sector in finding solution to public sector challenges
  • Transparency: Maintaining the village's strong reputation as a leader in local government transparency in the State of Illinois

Code of Ethics

Adopted in 1924, the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) Code of Ethics defined the principles that today serve as the foundation for the local government management profession and set the standard for excellence. Leadership in a management structure committed to equity, transparency, integrity, stewardship of public resources, political neutrality, and respect for the rights and responsibility of elected officials and residents strengthens democratic local governance. ICMA members pledge to uphold these principles in their conduct and decisions in order to merit the trust of the public, elected officials, and staff they serve. As a condition of membership, ICMA members agree to submit to a peer-to-peer review under established enforcement procedures should there be an allegation of unethical conduct. The Village Manager and Assistant Village Manager are ICMA members.
