With this issue, the OP/FYI newsletter returns to its original bi-monthly publication schedule as part of the effort to trim Village operating expenses and take advantage of the growing reliance of citizens on the internet as a source of the most up-to-date news. In addition to this issue, newsletters are scheduled for March, May, July, September and November. The OP/FYI was originally launched in 1989 on a bi-monthly schedule. Residents are urged to visit www.oak-park.us/news for breaking news from the Village. The latest official Village news also is available via email — just go to www.oak-park.us/enews to sign up. Or follow us on Facebook and Twitter at www.facebook.com/vopnews and twitter.com/vopnews.
Oak Park offers a variety of services that can be accessed online from a computer, tablet or smart phone. Some of the services are managed directly by the Village, while others are third-party vendors authorized by the Village to conduct transactions.
