Welcome to the Village of Oak Park

1 / 12
The Taxing Body Efficiency Task Force is seeking a third round of public input as it develops recommendations to identify cost efficiencies in the public services provided by the local governments that rely on property taxes.
Oak Park Police are reminding motorists to Click It or Ticket as part of the national seat-belt enforcement campaign set for May 18 - 29. Motorists caught not buckled up will be ticketed, and those caught driving impaired will be arrested.
Oak Park's 1,240 fire hydrants are being tested to ensure proper operations of these vital emergency response devices. If your notice cloudy water, just let the tap run for a couple of minutes and it should clear up.
The 43rd season of the Oak Park Farmers’ Market kicks off Saturday, May 19. The dynamic, open-air, producer-only market is held from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. rain or shine every Saturday from opening day through October at 460 Lake St.
Village vehicle stickers went on sale this week as renewal notices were sent to residents who purchased stickers last year. Every Oak Park resident who owns or leases a motor vehicle is required to display a valid Village sticker annually before July 15 to get the lowest rate.
Oak Parkers interested in reducing the amount of organic material sent to landfills can sign up for the Village's composting program and receive a discount in the process.
Applications are now open for three separate public art projects in the Village - the seventh annual Oak Park Sculpture Walk, the Oak Park Area Arts Council's mini-mural project and the Oak Park Arts District's streetlight pole banner project.
Residents interested in really getting to know the details of their Oak Park properties have an online resource available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Nearly 90 percent of all crime in Oak Park is against property, but armed robberies and vehicle hijackings do sometimes occur here. The best defense, Oak Park Police say, is to try to avoiding being an easy victim.
A specially designed mobile stroke unit soon will begin offering immediate diagnosis and treatment of patients wherever there is need. The custom-built ambulance is one of only six in the nation and is based at Rush Oak Park Hospital.
Like it or not, coyotes are a permanent fixture in Oak Park. But just seeing a coyote does not necessarily mean a dangerous situation for humans or domestic animals, officials say.
When it comes to saving lives, every minute counts for the firefighter/paramedics responding to a 911 call. That’s why every ambulance and fire engine deployed by the Oak Park Fire Department is equipped to deliver advance life support (ALS) at the scene.
